A 54-year-old man presented with symmetric, bulbous, nodular enlargement of his nasal tip and ala. At first inspection, the changes appeared to be consistent with rhinophyma, but biopsy revealed noncaseating granulomata consistent with sarcoidosis. His laboratory, radiographic, and functional studies were consistent with systemic involvement of his disease.
