Abstract


Rhinophyma is a clinical manifestation of rosacea, found mostly on men aged 30 to 50 years and usually accompanied by other forms of rosacea. Nose shape is deformed, changing the face beyond recognition and is associated with important negative stigma. Rosacea can be treated combining surgery and laser therapy, respectively mild-to-moderate cases of rhinophyma can be treated with CO2 laser surgery, while more severe cases are treated with a combination of surgery and laser. We present a patient with rhinophyma, which neglected the disease, and was treated by surgical removal and we also discuss the clinical and therapeutical aspects  of rynophima.
