Nasal sebaceous carcinoma is an extremely rare cutaneous malignancy. We present the case of an 86-year-old female who had a skin nodule with surface telangiectasia on the right ala of the nose. The lesion had been removed and has been reconstructed with an advancement rotational flap with a minimal residual defect. Upon histopathological examination, the lesion was diagnosed with sebaceous carcinoma. The patient was followed up because of the high rate of recurrence as well as metastatic potential. No recurrence occurred during 4 years of follow-up, and the patient was unwilling to reconstruct the remaining alar defect. We present a rare skin cancer case that could be encountered during the head and neck examination by oral and maxillofacial surgeons. By reporting this case, we aimed to raise the awareness and familiarize clinicians with these less common lesions.
