The present case illustrates the management of an avulsion of the nose due to human bite under local anaesthesia with intravenous conscious sedation. The human bite injury of the nose though relatively uncommon presents a challenge to the surgeon especially where treatment options are limited because of the poor financial circumstances of patient. This case shows that despite these challenges good results can be achieved by making good and prudent treatment decisions. Clearly, the nose is worth restoring given their functional, cosmetic and psychological importance.
