Introduction: Biomechanical principles for osteosynthesis are emphasized upon in oral and maxillofacial surgery residency programs. Discussion: Our case was referred from another specialty which had treated the patient for bilateral fractures of the anterior mandible. The gross malunion and other findings in this reported case serve to remind students and surgeons alike that principles of fracture reduction and fixation must be respected.
