ABSTRACT: Supernumerary nostril is a rare congenital anomaly that is classified under duplication of nose. Only 32 cases have been reported so far in the English literature. We attended to an adult female having supernumerary nostril. Surgical correction with minimum intervention was planned, keeping an option of open tip rhinoplasty as backup in case the patient needs it later. She was satisfied with the outcome in spite of having little asymmetry of her nostrils. This case is being reported here as an addition to the published list and the literature reviewed in this context.
