Parry-Romberg syndrome (PRS) is a rare degenerative disease characterized by unilateral, slow, and progressive atrophy of the facial tissue (including muscle, bones, and skin). Patients with this syndrome often develop a deviated nose. Such condition may lead to various aesthetic and functional issues. Septorhinoplasty plays a central role in the successful management of deviated nose. Here, we discuss the management of deviated nose in a patient with PRS along with evaluation of its characteristics, etiology, and pathophysiology. An 18-year/old female with deviated nose and the angle of her mouth toward the right side of the face underwent septorhinoplasty and labioplasty. Post surgery, functional and aesthetic improvements were observed in the deviated nose and facial asymmetry.
