Abstract
Background: The clinical features of nasal rosacea have not been described in detail. Objective: To describe the clinical features of nasal rosacea. Methods: 599 patients were classified into those with rosacea in both the nasal and extra-nasal areas (group A), localized nasal rosacea (group B) and rosacea without nasal involvement (group C). Results: The mixed subtype was more common in group A (n = 337) than in group C (n = 231). The severity score was higher in group A than in group C. Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea was the most common subtype in group B (n = 31) and was more common in group B than in group A. Rosacea mainly affected the lower half of the nose in group B, but affected the entire nose in group A. Conclusion: Nasal involvement may be an index of severe rosacea. Localized nasal rosacea is a separate spectrum with different clinical features. © 2015 S. Karger AG, Basel.
