Özet

Nasal septoplasty is a common and low-risk procedure performed very frequently in plastic surgery as well as in otorhinolaryngology. The development of a palatal perforation following a nasal septoplasty procedure is a very rare event with only a few cases reported in the literature. A patient with palatal fistula formation after septoplasty procedure is presented here, who was later on diagnosed with submucous cleft palate during the repair of the palatal fistula.
