Introduction: The purpose of this study was to evaluate anthropometric parameters of lip - nose complex in 11-17 years old males in Mashhad using photographic analysis.   Materials and Methods: Number of 357 Fars boys (11-17 years old), residence in Mashhad were included in this study. They were all class.I. Some frontal and lateral photographs of natural head position were taken by a digital camera. After landmark determination, anthropometric parameters including alar width, mouth width, nose height, cupid arch width, vertical height of lips, columellar width, nasolabial angle and nasal root slope angle were determined by Smile Analyzer software while Kruskal – Wallis test was used for data analyses. Results: This study revealed that alar width, nasal height and mouth width were increasing gradually within 11 to 16 years of age. But nose height to nose width proportion did not show any significant differences in different age groups (P=0.097). Nasolabial angle in different age groups had no significant statistical differences and it was between 95.83 and 100.05 (P=0.315). However for Cph-Cph, the distance was decreasing first and then increasing with no significant differences among age groups. Conclusion: Except significant differences observed in different age groups about nasolabial angle and nasal index, there were not any other significant differences for other anthropometric parameters. It could be helpful in orthodontic and surgical treatment planning.
