Rosacea Rhinophyma

Rosacea rhinophyma, a subtype of rosacea referred to as phymatous rosacea ("phyma" is the Greek word for swelling, mass and bulb), refers to the following nasal symptoms:

  • increase in size
  • bulbous growths and/or (clumps of) nodules
  • ruddy texture and colouring
  • irregular fibrous tissue growth
  • hypertrophy (overgrowth) of the sebaceous (oil) glands

The symptoms of rosacea rhinophyma can also occur elsewhere including on the cheeks, ears, forehead and chin.

Rosacea rhinophyma occurs much more commonly in men than women and may not be accompanied by the other symptoms of rosacea.

Skin cancer may be masked by rhinophyma and has been associated with higher levels of mast cells.

The management of rosacea rhinophyma involves the usual rosacea treatments and laser treatment for rhinophyma.
