Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate the components of class III malocclusion in adult Saudi male, and to compare the results to the control group with normal occlusion. Thirty standardized pre-treatment cephalometric radiographs of adult Saudi males with skeletal class III malocclusion and thirty cephalometric radiographs of dental students with normal occlusion were traced and digitized. Forty linear and angular variables were obtained to measure five major components of craniofacial structures; the cranial base, maxillary skeletal, mandibular skeletal, dentoalveolar, and soft tissues. The intea- and inter-examiner method errors were small and acceptable. The results showed statisticaly significant differences in the comparisons of the five major craniofacial components between the adult Saudi male with class III malocclusion and those with normal occlusion. The Saudi adult males with class [I[ malocclusion have shorter anterior, posterior and total cranial base length and smaller cranial base angle (saddle angle), retrognathic maxilla with short maxillary length, prognathic mandible and chin, longer total mandibular length, steeper mandibular plane with obtuse gonial angle, decreased posterior facial height, protruded maxillary incisors and retruded mandibular incisors with larger interincisal angle, retrusion of upper and lower lips to "E" line, and smaller nasiolabial angle.
