Treatment of a double-giant Rhinophyma with electrocautery and Versajet hydrosurgery system.

Ann Ital Chir. 2015;86

Abstract
Rhinophyma is a disfiguring condition etiologically related to rosacea and due to hypertrophy of the sebaceous glands of the nose. It leads to a progressive thickening of the skin up to the development, in some cases, of severe deformities that result in significant functional deficits and serious cosmetic damage. We report a case of giant rhinophyma consisting of 2 large masses that interfered with feeding and respiration of the patient, and we describe the surgical treatment by resection with electrosurgery and razor-thin saline jet (Versajet Hydrosurgery System). This combined approach is simple and effective for the treatment of severe cases of rhinophyma.
KEY WORDS: Rhinophyma, Nasal deformity, Versajet hydrosurgery system.
