Postburn kyphosis is extremely rare. Literature on this subject is lacking. We successfully managed a case of postburn mentosternal contracture with kyphosis of thoracic spine by a pedicled thoracodorsal artery perforator (TDAP) flap, postoperative postural bracing and physiotherapy. We had good functional and aesthetic outcomes with a satisfied patient and possible surgery for the spine was avoided. We would like to highlight this rare occurrence of a postburn kyphosis and present a detailed study of this case.
