Rhinolith is an uncommon nasal mass in children and adolescents. We report a 8 years old boy with a history of long standing foul smelling right sided nasal discharge, progressive nasal obstruction and recurrent epistaxis, which was clinically suspected as being due to the presence of a long standing foreign body. Rhinolith in the right nasal cavity was diagnosed on rigid endoscopic examination. Rhinolith was removed by using a 00 rigid nasal endoscope.
