We treated a 38-year-old man who had a large septal perforation that had been caused by chronic nasal inhalation of cocaine. We were able to repair the perforation with a left radial forearm free flap. Long-term followup indicates a successful closure of the defect and a natural thinning of the flap. The patient remains symptom-free more than 2 years following surgery.
