The congenital upper lip sinuses are rare and they have previously been reported only in 40 cases. We have presented a case report of congenital midline upper lip sinus in an elderly age. Although the treatment modality is very easy and successful in any cases, the etiology of this rare congenital situation has been obscure and further studies should be done to find out.
