Tropical Depression Seven was a tropical depression that did not reach tropical storm status during the 1992 Atlantic hurricane season. The depression developed in the Atlantic Ocean well east of the Lesser Antilles on September 25. The cyclone moved westward, and eventually northward and northeastward, where it dissipated in the open Atlantic on October 1.
The depression caused no damage or deaths.

Tropical Depression Seven originated from a poorly organized tropical wave that exited the coast of Africa on September 23. The wave moved westward with little change in organization until September 25, when an increase in organization occurred, and the first Dvorak classifications were taken. The wave developed into a tropical depression at 1200 UTC that same day while located about 675 miles southwest of the Cape Verde Islands. After forming, the cyclone moved west-northwest and within 24 hours, strong southwesterly vertical wind shear began to impinge upon the cyclone, which resulted in the low-level center becoming completely exposed from the deep convection. Over the next three days, the depression took a gradual turn to the northwest, followed by a northward turn. During this time, the depression went through periods of organization and then disorganization. By 1800 UTC October 1, the depression dissipated while located approximately 975 miles southwest of the Azores.
