What causes rhinophyma?The cause of rhinophyma is not fully understood.

Theories include:

  • Enlarged blood vessels may predispose to skin thickening.
  • Vascular instability may lead to leakage of fluid into the tissues. This subsequently triggers inflammation and scarring.

Rhinophyma predominantly affects men. The male-to-female ratio in patients with rhinophyma ranges from 5:1 to 30:1. This is possibly due to androgens (male hormones).
