Benign nostril growth*
This patitent presented with a mass growing along his left nostril. Dr. Bridges excised the mass and used septal cartilage to support the nostril rim to prevent retraction during healing. The pathology revealed a rare type of skin tumor.
This case was published in the Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery journal in 2009.
