A rhombic disphenoid is a type of tetrahedron with 4 identical scalene triangles as faces. Rhombic disphenoids are related to tetragonal disphenoids, and can be considered to be the digonal version of gyroprisms.

A rhombic disphenoid can generally be formed by alternating a cuboid.

Rhombic disphenoids occur as cells in any n-d step prism where both n and d are even, along with a number of other isogonal polychora.
