3 doctors agree
In brief: Uncommon unless...
You live in the tropics or have been swimming in stagnant water as its caused by a fresh water protozoan - hillbilly handfishing alert! that said i've never seen or heard of a case.
I daresay that my colleagues and i don't think of this disease when we find nasal polyps. We may be missing a few cases.
