A 62-year-old man presented with a giant, multilobulated mass over the nose [Figure 1] with dilated pilosebaceous pores for the past 1.5 years. Based on the clinical appearance and histopathological findings, we made a diagnosis of rhinophyma due to sebaceous hypertrophy. Rhinophyma is a disfiguring deformity caused due to sebaceous gland and connective tissue proliferation.[1] It is caused due to sebaceous gland hypertrophy, rosacea, acne vulgaris, and chronic actinic damage or may arise de novo.
