This clinical report describes a case of rhinorrhea that arose after surgical intervention of partial maxillary resection and obturator prosthesis positioning. Ultimately, the diagnosis was that rhinorrhea was induced by mechanical irritation of the nasal mucosa determined by the nasal part of the obturator prosthesis. The differential diagnosis of nasal irritation, vasomotor rhinitis, gustatory rhinorrhea are presented and discussed, as well as the technical notes and measures taken to reach the final diagnosis and a satisfactory functional and aesthetic result for the patient.
