Abstract: Basal cell carcinoma is the most common skin cancer and can result in significant morbidity if not completely excised. The present article describes a case of nasal reconstruction using the Rieger flap, after the excision of a basal cell carcinoma, which yielded good aesthetic results. The authors have chosen this flap due to the fact that the donor area contains an abundant supply of tissue to cover surgical wounds, which is of a good color and texture for the upper region of the nose.
