Rhinophyma (Greek “nose growth”) benign skin deformity characterized by tumorous growth leading to a large, bulbous, and erythematous appearing nose. It is a rare subtype of phymatous rosacea. The exact pathogenesis is still not known. It can lead to considerable cosmetic impairment with psychosocial implications and poses a risk of developing an occult malignancy. Early diagnosis and treatment is imperative to avoid these complications. Herein, we report a case of a 47-year-old man presenting with rhinophyma who was treated with ultra plus CO2laser.
