Abstract

Rhinophyma is a rare disease which causes disfiguring soft tissue hypertrophy of the nose. The fibrous variant of rhinophyma is still rare which mimics fibrous papule of nose and lupus pernio. We report an unusual fibrous variant which was surgically managed with the good results. The use of scalpel for sculpting and the use of split thickness skin graft is being highlighted.
