Rhinophyma, final stage of rosacea is considered as benign pathology. We present the case of a patient with basal cell carcinoma diagnosed on rhinophyma. The removal of all cutaneous nasal unit and its analysis has diagnosed the presence of three basal cell carcinomas and two in situ squamous cell carcinomas. Reconstruction was performed by full-thickness skin graft. The literature reports a few cases of association between rhinophyma and skin cancers but none ever reported the simultaneous presence of basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinomas. The low number of articles does not reveal statistically significant relationship between rhinophyma and skin cancer, which would consider the rhinophyma as a risk factor. Monitoring of these patients should be as rigorous as possible and surgical care requires histologic analysis not to omit the presence of cancerous lesions.
