[Rhinophyma--diagnosis and treatment]

Otolaryngol Pol. 2005;59(4):581-4

Authors: Szymańska-Skrzypek A, Burduk PK, Betlejewski S

The authors present four cases with rare disease--rhinophyma. These disease occurs mainly in males of middle and old age. It results from long-standing rosacea in some patients. Risk factors are blood vessels disorders, endocrinal abnormality, digestive tract disorder. In laryngological practice there are many methods of non-surgical treatment of rhinophyma. The aim of the treatment is to remove deformation and restore function of the nose and prevent the relapse of rhinophyma. Rhinophyma is removed with the epidermis and the wound is realest to self epithelisation in case of small changes, but in more severe cases of rhinophyma the wound needs to be covered by skin scalp.
