Abstract:   (815 Views)
There are some rare but probable devastating complications following any rhinoplasty. Charlin’s syndrome is a typical one. It is completely related to the external nasal nerve. In this report, we are presenting a 21-year-old female with signs and symptoms of Charlin’s syndrome, persisting for 4 years after a routine septorhinoplasty operation. Surgery was uneventful and the patient underwent bony septal resection and caudal septal relocation. Osteotomy was internal low to low and external transverse bilaterally. Overall, a routine septorhinoplasty was executed. Everything went well postoperatively, until 4 months after surgery, when some irritating symptoms developed and gradually intensified.
