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.

Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome). Flat, star-shaped skin lesions 1-3 mm in diameter on the entire face. Some non-pulsating telangiectasias appear similar to araneus nevi. A papule the size of a match head is visible at the alar.

Figure 8: Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome). Flat, star-shaped skin lesions 1-3 mm in diameter on the entire face. Some non-pulsating telangiectasias appear similar to araneus nevi. A papule the size of a match head is visible at the alar.

Mentions: Osler-Weber-Rendu disease is an autosomal dominant disorder that induces the formation of multiple punctate telangiectasias and hemangiomas (Fig. 8). Accompanying epistaxis and mucocutaneous visceral arteriovenous malformations with melena are common. The prevalence is 1-2 per 100,000. Skin lesions can be treated with a long-pulsed Nd: YAG laser, flash-pumped dye laser or an IPL system. Notably, estrogen therapy has been effective in severe cases of Osler-Weber-Rendu disease [89]. Electrocautery or argon beam ablation is described as a possible treatment option for cases of spontaneous recurrent epistaxis [90].
