The prosthetic rehabilitation is a surgical alternative in functional-aestetic facial reconstruction when the conventional reconstructive surgery cannot be applied because of phisical and psychophisical patient condition or because of extended loss of substance. We present a case of a phagedenic nasal basal cell carcinoma (BCC). Radical surgery was performed in order to remove the mass. Subsequently, the loss of substance on the face was covered by a skin graft. After a one-year follow up, the patient was free of disease and was used a nasal epistheses to cover the remaining nasal loss of substance.
