• A case of symptomatic ossification of the pterygomandibular raphe, believed to be the first reported case of such an entity, was relieved by surgical removal of the ossified tissue. Ossification of the pterygomandibular raphe should, in the future, be considered in the differential diagnosis in cases of obscure lateral pharyngeal pain.
