Congenital anomalies of the nose is comprised of a broad spectrum of different types of malformations ranging from a minor alar cleft to total agenesia. Reports about congenital septal defects are few in literature. In this manuscript, we report on a 19-year-old male patient with a congenital defect on the posteroinferior portion of the septum. The defect was diagnosed by endoscopy and confirmed by computed tomography. This defect probably occurred because of an arrest in development of vomeral bone. The literature on this rare occurrence is reviewed, and the significance of the patient is discussed.
