Osteosarcoma is the most common primary malignant bone tumor in children. Its radiolographic appearances vary considerably. It may show a number of presentations from onion skin or sunburst appearance. Osteosarcoma of maxilla and mandible are distinct from long bone osteosarcoma and shows a distinct clinical, histologic and prognostic characteristic that when diagnosed and treated properly have a better prognosis from the later.
