ABSTRACT
Skin diseases on the nose are seen in a variety of medical disciplines. Dermatologists, otorhinolaryngologists, general practitioners and general plastic and dermatologic surgeons are regularly consulted regarding cutaneous lesions on the nose. This article is the second part of a review series dealing with cutaneous lesions on the head and face, which are frequently seen in daily practice by a dermatologic surgeon. In this review, we focus on those skin diseases on the nose where surgery or laser therapy is considered a possible treatment option or that can be surgically evaluated.

Mentions: Mohs surgery allows complete circumferential peripheral and deep margin assessment using frozen section histology. In classic Mohs surgery, the tissue is excised in a cone-shaped pattern with a very small surgical margin (1 to 1.5 mm of visually uninvolved skin). Specimen preparation consists of cutting the specimen on the cryostat, placing sections on slides, followed by staining and evaluation by the Mohs surgeon (Fig. 14). The special method of tissue processing and staining in Mohs surgery has been compared with peeling an orange, where the peel is the surgical margin that is removed and flattened out for further examination [125]. Actually there are no equivalent data to compare both methods.
