Panfacial injuries may require composite reconstruction of the palate, or the use of an obturator. Composite reconstruction can be by a pedicle flap, which may be local, regional or micro vascular free tissue transfer. We report reconstruction of a complete defect of the palate using a forehead flap in a 34-year-old male patient.
