    Background and Aim: Physical beauty of a person was said to be visually pleasing, if it follows the “golden proportion” in the human face. The mandible is considered as one of the most pleasing structures. Hence, it is thought to follow the golden proportion which is a well-proportioned and normal face. However, does this apply to skeletal malocclusions? Materials and Methods: Pre-treatment lateral cephalograms of patients were evaluated, for which three groups were formed with 20 patients in each group: Group 1 - Class-I skeletal bases, Group 2 - Class-II skeletal bases, and Group 3 - Class-III skeletal bases. The cephalograms were traced on FACAD software and the ratio between condylar and corpus axis was calculated; the mean ratio obtained was compared to the golden ratio (0.6180) of the dental skeletal patterns using sample t-test. Results: Statistically significant difference (P < 0.05) was found only in Group 3 - skeletal Class III patients, mainly between the mean value of the ratio of condylar to corpus axis of the mandibles and the golden ratio. Conclusion: In this study, the ratio of condylar axis to corpus axis was significantly different in Class III skeletal pattern.
