Cancers and granulomatous diseases cause wide spread destruction of nose and reconstruction is a challenge to the surgeon. majority of the surgical defects after BCC excision can be reconstructed by full thickness skin grafts, bilobed and rhomboid local flaps but excision of SCC and large BCC lead to large surgical defects which need regional or distant flaps for reconstruction like median forehead flaps.
