Two cases of Post Burn Neck Contracture with Apertognathia are presented. Both patients had untreated flame burns sustained in childhood and resulted in deformity of mandible along with cervical contracture. Complete correction mandated release of neck contracture with split thickness skin cover and an anterior segmental osteotomy of mandible in the second stage to correct the open bite deformity.
