Congenital pits on lower lips unassociated with any syndrome are a rare developmental malformation. Vermilion border of the lower lip is the most common site of occurrence. Mostly, these lip pits are inherited as an autosomal dominant trait with variable penetrance. The females are more affected than males. This is a case report of a 7-year-old female child with nonsyndromic congenital lower lip pits, where two of her other family members were also affected.
