A true skeletal class III malocclusion is characterized by prognathic mandible, deficient midface or a combination of both. Class III malocclusions may always not be skeletal .They can be pseudo-class III malocclusions. In these cases in addition to paraclinical documents, it is necessary to do accurate clinical exams.
 In this case report the patient was a 19 years old female who complained from mandibular prognathism, presenting skeletal class III malocclusion accompanied with forward mandibular shift and mild maxillary crowding. This case was treated without surgical intervention, using fixed edgewise technique and compensation mechanics. During treatment, maxillary teeth aligned by mild protrusion of anterior teeth and finally inter arch relationship modified by using class III elastics and retrusion of mandibular incisors.
At the end of treatment we obtained class I dental relationship, an Ideal occlusion relationship and an esthetic dental and facial relationship. Treatment of patient was completed within 6 months.
