A total of 60 subjects were enrolled in the present study were broadly divided into two study groups; study group-comprising of patients with class III malocclusion and control group. Cephalometric analysis was done in all the patients using cephalograms, which were traced on special tracing papers. All the results were compiled in Microsoft excel sheet and were analyzed by SPSS software. Results: Mean SNA for the subjects of the study group and the control group were 76.2 and 83.2 respectively. Significant results were obtained while comparing the mean SNA, SNB, SNPog, ANB and maxillary length in between the study group and the control group. Conclusion: Class III patients show significant amount of maxillary deficiency and mandibular prognathism. However; further studies are recommended for better exploration of results.
