Osteosarcoma of the jawbones is a rare malignant mesenchymal neoplasm with the tendency for new bone being directly formed by the tumor cells. Clinically, the tumor may be central or peripheral—periosteal—and histologically can be divided into three subtypes: osteoblastic, fibroblastic, and chondroblastic.

Problems related to definitive diagnosis and therapy are described and discussed.
