rss Posted April 24, 2011 Report Share Posted April 24, 2011 [A giant rhinophyma.] Vestn Otorinolaringol. 2011;(2):68-69 Authors: Mustafaev DM, Svistushkin VM Rhinophyma is an infiltrative-productive stage of rosacea characterized by the formation of inflammatory nodes, infiltrates, and tumour-like outgrowths due to progressive hyperplasia of the connective tissue and sebaceous glands as well as persistent vasodilatation as a result of a chronic progredient disease. The authors describe a man with the severe form of rhinophyma in whom this condition was treated by the application of a cold plasma. A good cosmetic result with minimal scarring was achieved by this method.
