Nasal tip and septal perforations may lead to significant upper airway problems as well as disturbing esthetic changes in the external contour of the nose. Nasal defects impede normal social contact and create great self-identity problems for the patients.
We report the case of a 37-year-old woman, taking drugs for 10 years, who had sepsis and nasal abscess with necrosis of the nasal tip and septum. Using a composite expanded forehead flap for reconstruction of the nose, good esthetic and functional results were achieved.
