Abstract

Osteosarcoma is a bone tumor and can occur in any bone, usually in the extremities of long bones near metaphyseal growth plates. The most common sites are the femur (42%), tibia (19%), and humerus (10%). Other significant locations are the skull and jaw (8%), pelvis (8%), other bones (13%). Osteosarcoma of the jaw differs from osteosarcoma of the long bones in its biological behavior even though they have the same histologic appearance. Its radiographic appearance varies, though the presence of radial spicules and Codman's triangle are highly suggestive of Osteosarcoma. Early diagnosis and radical surgery are the keys to high survival rates. This article presents a case of osteosarcoma of mandible in a 20 year old male patient.
