          Abstract

          Complex surgical nasal defects are often technically difficult. We report the case of a 71-year old male diagnosed with a malignant melanoma (animal type; Breslow 1.5; Clark IV) on the right nasal ala. Radial excision with margins of approximately 1.5cm was performed, creating a complex full-thickness surgical defect involving the free wall and margin of the right nasal ala, the right soft triangle, nasal lobe and columella, which was reconstructed using a melolabial interpolated flap, with highly satisfactory final esthetic result. Interpolated flaps are viable surgical options for the reconstruction of surgical defects for which local flaps and skin grafts are not suitable.

          A reconstrução de defeitos cirúrgicos complexos do nariz é, por norma, tecnicamente difícil. Apresentamos um doente do sexo masculino, de 71 anos, referenciado após biopsia excisional de melanoma maligno de tipo animal (Breslow 1,5 mm, Clark IV) da asa direito do nariz. O alargamento excisional com margem de 1,5 cm originou um defeito complexo envolvendo a asa nasal direita, o triângulo mole direito, o lobo nasal e a columela, que foi reconstruído por retalho interpolado do sulco melolabial, com resultado cosmético final bastante satisfatório. Os retalhos interpolados são opções cirúrgicas eficazes para reconstrução de defeitos cutâneos para os quais a realização de retalhos locais não é possível e a colocação de enxertos inviabiliza um resultado cosmético aceitável.
