After intraoral tumor resection, various reconstructive surgeries have been used to repair the defect. Before the selection of procedure, we should consider the size of defect, the difficulty of operative procedure, operation time and viability of flap, donor the necessary tissue, especially, with the lesions of palatine arch, retromolar trigone, tonsillar fossa, and posterior third of the floor of the mouth. We got favorable cosmetic and functional results in two patients who underwent reconstruction with palatal island flaps for intraoral defect. This paper represents the versatility of the palatal island flap for intraoral reconstruction and to in-troduce our clinical experiences. (Korean J Otolaryngol 203 ;46 :173-6)
