Abstract

We describe the case of a 46-year-old woman with a rare presentation of angioleiomyoma of the subcutaneous nasal tissue. The patient presented with pain and severe nasal obstruction. Her nasal deformity was sufficient to indicate an external rhinoplasty for both extirpation of the tumor and reconstruction of the defect with cartilage grafts. The procedure resulted in successful removal of the tumor and a satisfactory cosmetic outcome.
