The diagnosis of craniofacial pain is conditioned by the interdisciplinary management of its presentation especially in the absence of unique and objective signs. Bursitis is a pathological entity recently found in the hamular area and should be included in the diagnosis for exclusion of temporomandibular disorders (TMD), ear-nose-throat pathologies, due to the similar symptomatology to other head and neck conditions. The hamular process bursitis is a painful condition that can easily be confused with glosopharinge or trigeminal neuralgia that generates an uncomfortable feeling in the oropharinge with ipsilateral referred - heteretopic - symptomatology to the head. This pathology, in chronic states, can be responsible for the amplification of the pain perceived by the central excitation effect. In this report are presented two clinical cases of hamular bursitis and its conservative therapeutic management. The recognition of the inflammation of the bursa of the tensor veli palati muscle supplies the specialist with another tool in the management of craniofacial pain.
