Rhinotillexomania Manifesting as Empty Nose Syndrome.
Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol 2019; :3489419870832AO

Abstract

OBJECTIVES

To highlight a severe case of rhinotillexomania (compulsive nasal picking) and its potential to manifest as empty nose syndrome (ENS).

METHODS

A single case report with the presentation and management of a patient with severe rhinotillexomania who presented with chronic obstructive symptoms. We review the current literature on rhinotillexomania and ENS.

RESULTS

This patient's manifestations mimic the obstructive symptoms of ENS, despite widely patent nasal passages.

CONCLUSION

This is the first report of rhinotillexomania manifesting with features of ENS.
