Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Rhinophyma is a progressive nasal deformity caused by hypertrophy of sebaceous glands and soft tissue of the nose. A 74-year-old male patient presented with a giant bad-smelling mass hanging down from the alar wings, causing difficulty in breathing and eating. Under local anesthesia, the lesion was excised and the defect was closed with a full thickness skin graft. The patient recovered without any problem and got out of difficulty in breathing and feeding. The treatment of rhinophymas, which have reached a large size, increases the patient’s life quality, can breathe more easily and eat, increase their self-esteem and improve the social life of the patient. The size of the defect occurred after excision of giant rhinophyma limits the use of flaps. However, it can be used to cover the large defects and provide a rapid recovery, which makes graft use a step forward in the treatment of giant rhinophimas.

Keywords: Rhinophyma; breathing difficulty; skin graft
