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.

Figure 15: BCC Nodular type. Red, waxy nodule on the tip of the nose. Visible telangiectasias over the surface.

Mentions: Although it rarely metastasizes, untreated BCC can cause considerable disfigurement and is potentially life threatening when eroding vital structures. Five BCC subtypes with different clinical behavior can be distinguished: pigmented, cystic, superficial multicentric, morphea-like and nodular-ulcerative types (with the last being the most common, Fig. 15). Pigmented BCC can mimic melanoma upon clinical examination and usually occurs in sun-exposed areas [Fig. 16] [135]. Morphea-like BCC shows a lingular growth pattern and varies in size [Fig. 17]. It is a rare morphological variant of BCC (roughly 2% of all BCCs) and is the most insidious form because the degree of infiltration can far exceed what is clinically visible, because the tumor grows in an 'iceberg'-like pattern with only the top of the tumor visible [136,137].
