In this study, we report a case of two palatal root canals in a maxillary second molar that was endodontically treated. The possibility of two palatal root canals in maxillary second molars is quite small; however, it must be taken into account in clinical and radiographic evaluation during endodontic treatment. Often, their presence is noticed only after a canal treatment due to continuing post-operative discomfort.
