[Otophyma, zygophyma and giant rhinophyma: a rare association]

Ann Chir Plast Esthet. 2008 Oct;53(5):441-7

Authors: Blairvacq JS, Yachouh J, Calteux N, Schmit S, Goudot P

A patient, 64-year-old, is referred for the treatment of a giant rhinophyma. He refused any treatment during eight years. The interest of this case report is the size and the weight of the rhinophyma, the obstruction of the nasal airways and the resulting social disturbance. This exceptional clinical rhinophyma was associated with an otophyma, a zygophyma and ophthalmic disease. To our knowledge, this clinical presentation has never been reported before. The management of the rhinophyma and the otophyma was surgical excision, secondary healing followed by a full thickness skin graft associated to a fullface mechanical dermabrasion.
