Orocutaneous lesions of odontogenic origin are rare, and sometimes, they can mimic as dermatological lesions. They are usually misdiagnosed, and as a result, the treatment is delayed leading to the chronicity of the lesion and enlargement of the fistula and bone loss. These cases require multispecialty consultation for proper diagnosis and treatment. Here, we report a case series of orocutaneous fistulae, due to misdiagnosis, the treatment rendered was improper, leading to enlargement of the lesion along with bony defect and loss of tooth.
