Orocutaneous fistulas or cutaneous sinus tracts of dental origin are pathologic communications between the cutaneous surface of the face and the oral cavity. They are relatively uncommon and may be easily misdiagnosed. In this report, management of an orocutaneous fistula of dental origin, which endured for 20 years, by using an extraoral bilobed skin flap, an intraoral buccal rotational mucosal flap and allogenic bone graft, is presented.
