Mentions: The patient was subjected to surgical treatment with hemimaxillectomy of the affected side and underwent postoperative radiotherapy. Reconstructive surgery was performed nine months later (Figure 6). As surgery was not able to close the communication between oral and nasal cavities, the patient was rehabilitated with an obturator prosthesis (Figure 7).
