Abstract For patients undergoing radical head and neck surgery, the deformity or physical defect adds to the agony. Rehabilitation of patients with such deformities is a challenge for the maxillofacial prosthodontist to enhance the esthetics and give psychological strength to the patient. This clinical report describes the rehabilitation, using a silicone prosthesis, of a large facial and orbital defect due to mucoepidermoid carcinoma. © 2012 by the American College of Prosthodontists.
