Özet

Bite wounds in the nose region may lead to serious esthetic problems and functional losses. The authors describe a dog bite to his nose, resulting in a defect involving the entire tip of the nose and a part of the surrounding subunits. He was repaired with forehead flap and auricular conchal cartilage acutely. To the authors' knowledge, there are very few cases of acute repair in the literature. The authors also made a literature review on this subject.
