    Abstract

    A 35-year-old woman with necrosis of the complete nasal tract due to nasal cocaine abuse is presented. Reconstruction was performed using a free radial forearm flap and rib cartilage grafts. Pre-existing skin of the nose was used for outer lining. The reconstruction led to an excellent functional and aesthetic result.
