Abstract

Surgical correction of nasal atresia following healing of smallpox lesions in a 15-year-old girl is presented. The surgical technique used was complete excision of the scars and resurfacing of the resulting wound with grafts of full-thickness retroauricular skin. Particular attention was paid to prevention of postoperative contracture.
