Abstract

Partial defects of the nose is considered one of the most difficult defects to be restored in the face.This is largely due to the difficulty in camouflaging and hiding the edges of prostheses. The proper configuration and selection of appropriate color is one of the most important criteria to receive prostheses acceptance by the patient. In this clinical report we use RTV silicone material to make nasal prosthesis for partial nasal defect in AML patient. The prosthesis was retained using anatomical undercuts and medical adhesives.
