Facial pain is a complex disorder to diagnose and to manage. Problems in the craniofacial area may present with conflicting and blurred symptomatology that may result in an obscured clinical picture where a single etiological factor may seem unlikely. This is a report of a case of chronic palatal pain in a patient who was previously surgically managed for a cleft soft palate and partial cleft hard palate.
