Peripheral nerve sheath tumours of the nose are rare. We present three patients, one with a neurofibroma, the second a schwannoma and the third a plexiform neurofibroma of the nose. They were successfully removed using an external rhinoplasty with good functional and aesthetic outcomes after a mean follow up of three years. The repercussion of these diagnoses is discussed with a review of the literature.
