A burn case of 42-year-old female patient due to pressure cooker explosion associated with mandibular fracture is presented. After early tangential excision of the deep second- and third-degree-burn areas, a split-thickness skin grafting was applied. Open reduction and internal fixation therapy with miniplate system were done for linear symphysis fracture. As much as we know, there was no report in the literature about pressure-cooking burn accompanying mandibular fracture.
