Abstract

Supernumerary nostril is an extremely rare congenital anomaly. It can be unilateral or bilateral and it sometimes occurs in association with other congenital abnormalities. We describe a newborn infant with bilateral supernumerary nostrils together with oesophageal atresia and patent ductus arteriosus, an association that has not been reported previously in the literature.
