A very severe case of rhinophyma requiring a three-stage reconstruction with a forehead flap.

Abstract
Rhinophyma is a skin condition that affects the nose. It is often characterised by a large, red, bulbous nose. It can have a physical, psychological and social impact on the patient. Management options include conservative medical therapy such as retinoids or surgical excision followed by reconstruction as required. The reconstruction options can range from a dermal substitute full-thickness skin graft to local flaps, depending on the wound bed. We present a severe case of rhinophyma that required a complex reconstruction with a three-stage forehead flap because of the mass effect and the wound that resulted from the surgical excision of an extremely large and troublesome rhinophyma.
