The skin of the nose is a common site for various benign and malignant lesions. Herein, we report a cutaneous nodular lesion on the dorsum of the nose in an 80-year-old female, which was surgically excised under local anesthesia. On histopathological examination, she was diagnosed with papillary carcinoma, a very rare disorder at such a location. The patient was followed-up and no recurrence was noted.

Ethical Approval

The study followed the ethical guidelines of the Declaration of Helsinki. Written informed consent was taken from the patient for publication in the journal.
