Many cases of rhinophyma have been reported in the European and American literature. To date, African cases have not been described. We report a case of rhinophyma observed in the ENT unit at CHU of Treichville. The diagnosis is made clinically and histologically. This patient refused surgical treatment and has not been seen in our unit since. This is the first case of rhinophyma seen in our service. Treatment difficulties arise due to the technical challenges of a good cosmesis and rejection of surgical intervention as in this case.
