FIRST PARAGRAPHS: Osteosarcoma affects the mandible and the maxilla differently, with mandibular tumors tending to arise from the body of the mandible while maxillary tumors arise from the alveolar ridge and sinus. Osteosarcoma is a mesenchymal malignancy in which the neoplastic cells synthesize and secrete the organic components of bone matrix. While it is the most common primary tumor of bone, it is very uncommon overall.
