Abstract
Severe chest burns in children that prevent breast development at puberty cause challenging problems. Burns result in contracture that lead to size, shape, and positioning problems. In the present case, we used a free anterolateral thigh (ALT) flap to release lower pole contracture in a breast with a burn deformity.

A 17-year-old healthy girl had suffered a severed breast deformity due to burn contracture and underwent surgery to release the lower pole contracture of the breast.

The patient was followed for 8 months and was satisfied with her final outcome.

An ALT flap should be considered as a versatile option for partial breast reconstruction in selected patients who have deformities due to burns.

Key words: Anterolateral thigh flap, burn, breast, contracture
