The nasoalveolar fistula (NAF) represents one of the most common sequels of the Cleft Lip and Palate treatment. Their resolution improves phonation, the eruption of tooth, permits that the nasal and oral cavities be separated, construction of a continuous arch form and alveolar ridge and the implant treatment for better occlusion. Different treatments have been established to treat NAF; the iliac crest graft almost always is the first option. The objective of this work is to present the treatment of NAF with allogenic graft plus bone marrow aspirated from the iliac crest under local anesthesia. The result obtained at 4 months meets the main objectives of fistula closure, plus the possibility of prosthetic rehabilitation with dental implants. Nasoalveolar fistula closing with allograft bone marrow aspirate and allows bone formed is of better quality by integrating the three main properties for this purpose, osteoconduction and osteoinduction osteogenesis

Key words: Bone marrow aspiration, nasoalveolar cleft, osteogenesis, demineralized bone matrix.
