Rhinophyma is an uncommon condition that often results in both functional and cosmetic impairment. A 65-year old male with a huge rhinophyma, that had extremely grown in the last three years, is presented. The huge tumor was removed under local anaesthesia with electrosurgical knife preserving the alar cartilage. Both, the immediate and late result were satisfactory. The relevant literature is discussed.
