Rare autoimmune disorders have caused a woman’s nose to break

A rare autoimmune disorder decimated the cartilage and bone in a woman’s nose, causing her nose to collapse and sink into her face.

When the 34-year-old reported to the facial plastic surgery clinic, her nasal bride completely collapsed, causing her top nos to withdraw, according to a report published on April 5 in New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM). The deformity appeared over seven years.
