Osteosarcomas are malignant neoplasms of the bone which commonly affect the long bones. The involvement of the jaws are rarely noticed. These neoplasms often shows a typical clinical behaviour as well as varied radiological appearances. Similarly, their histological growth pattern can be quite diverse. Confirmation of the final diagnosis of an osteosarcoma often requires a histopathological examination of the multiple biopsy specimens and vigorous discussion amongst the experts. All these clinical features, radiographic appearances and histological diagnostic difficulties were encountered in a case of osteosarcoma of the mandible in a 29-year old female.
