• We report an unusual complication of nasal surgery. A rare, localized Pseudomonas infection of the nose developed after a routine submucous resection and nasal reconstruction in a healthy 56-year-old woman. We emphasize the need for early aggressive management in the treatment of Pseudomonas infections of the nose.
