Of all the cutaneous tumours, the reported incidence of porocarcinoma is as low as 0.005-0.01%. Very few cases of porocarcinoma of the nose have been described in English literature. Median forehead flap, also known as seagull flap is an excellent reconstruction modality for the nasal defect. We describe here an interesting case of porocarcinoma of the dorsum of the nose which was reconstructed in the first stage using a seagull flap providing the patient with a pleasing nasal profile.
