Sažetak

Rosacea is one of the most common chronic dermatological diseases. It has four subtypes and the third one is referred to as rhinophyma. It is characterized by an increase in nose volume and its aetiology is still unknown. The aim of this paper is to present the results of our thirty-year experience in the treatment of rhinophyma applying the combined surgical techniques of decortication and electrocauterization. Materials and methods: The research embraced a pattern of 55 male patients and was carried out in the period from 1980 to 2010. Results: The advantage of these techniques consists in preserving the original nose shape and colour. It is important to point out that no recurrence was observed even after one year elapsed from the operation. Conclusion: The paper includes essential information on all surgical methods in the treatment of rhinophyma specifiying their advantages and disadvantages. Besides surgical treatment, rhinophyma can be treated with drugs of which Tamoxifen is particularly worth while mentioning.
