    In this study, we wanted to do aetiopathological evaluation of granulomatous conditions of nose and para nasal sinus (PNS). METHODS: This was a hospital-based study conducted among 73192 patients who presented with symptoms of nasal obstruction, discharge, epistaxis, crusting, ulceration or mass suspected to be due to granuloma of nose, to the Department of Otorhinolaryngology, M.K.C.G Medical College, Berhampur, Orissa, from October 2019 to October 2021, after obtaining clearance from institutional ethics committee and written informed consent from the study participants. RESULTS: Rhinosporidiosis was having highest incidence of 93.17%. Mass in nose and nasal obstruction are the most common presenting symptoms by the patients of granulomatous disorders of nose. CONCLUSION: For the causes of granulomatous disorders of nose, it is recommended to confirm the granulomatous condition by biopsy and histopathological study irrespective of treatment procedures used. It will help not only to establish the correct diagnosis but also to exclude a neoplasm which may clinically simulate with granulomatous lesion. Hence, by giving early and proper line of treatment, we can reduce the mortality and morbidity. Proper surveillance and timely institution of preventive measures like increasing the economic, educational, hygienic, immunity status of the people, the incidence can be lowered down
