“Cyrano nose” associated with hepatic hemangiomas successfully treated with propranolol


Hemangioma of the nasal tip is commonly described as “Cyrano nose” and his treatment is extremely difficult because of its location and possible severe aesthetic complications like definitive nasal deformation.
