Abstract
Introduction: Rhinophyma is an uncommon subtype of rosacea, the clinical diagnosis of which is straightforward. However, localized, especially well-circumscribed, rhinophyma is a very rare condition, which requires a paraclinical assessment to be accurately diagnosed.
Case Report: We report a 48-year-old male patient who presented with a well-circumscribed and dark red tumoral mass of 28 mm in diameter and smooth consistency in the right nasal ala. The patient had no former and concomitant characteristic skin lesions on the other part of his face. Histopathology and immunohistochemistry assessments documented the diagnosis of rhinophyma.
Conclusion: To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report of well-circumscribed localized rhinophyma. This lesion can be treated by CO2 laser in a fast and efficient manner with esthetically satisfactory outcome and no significant complications.
