Osteosarcoma is a common malignant lesion of the long bones and occurs rarely in the jaw. In comparison to the mandible it is a rarity in the maxilla. Diagnosed based on the radiographic and histologic findings, jaw osteosarcoma has an increased 5 year survival rate and low incidence of metastasis as compared to that of the long bones. Patients with jaw osteosarcoma can be remarkably treated with a combination of surgery and chemotherapy. One such case of a maxillary osteosarcoma is presented here.
