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. It is caused due to sebaceous gland hypertrophy, rosacea, acne vulgaris, and chronic actinic damage or may arise de novo.
