Abstract

The author presents the first reported case of a nasal angiolipoma presenting as "Pinocchio" nasal tip deformity. The two types of angiolipomas (infiltrating and non-infiltrating) are discussed as are two surgical approaches to this deformity. The author feels that the external rhinoplasty technique is an excellent way to approach this problem, especially in patients who are suffering severe emotional stress due to peer pressure.
