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 4: Eccrine hydrocystoma. Multiple small papules. Some are skin-colored; the larger papules are dark ("hydrocystome noire").

Mentions: Hydrocystomas are benign cysts of sweat ducts that arise in the apocrine or eccrine glands (Fig. 4) [32]. They usually present as solitary translucent bluish nodules. The blue color is due to the Tyndall effect, caused by scattered light. Histopathology shows uni- or multilocular cystic spaces within the dermis. Multiple hydrocystomas have been described in Schopf-Schulz-Passarge syndrome, a rare autosomal recessive genodermatosis characterized by palmoplantar keratodermas, eyelid apocrine hydrocystomas, hypodontia, hypotrichosis and onychodystrophy [33]. The treatment of hydrocystomas with topical trichloracetic acid, simple excision, electrosurgery, CO2 laser or a 1450-nm diode laser have been described [34-38].
