This is a case report of a rare malignant mesenchymal tumor, juxtacortical (periosteal) osteosarcoma arising from the mandible in a 17 year old boy. About 4%-6% of osteosarcomas occur in the maxillofacial region, while incidence of osteosarcoma occurring in jaw is 0.7 per million population. Due to its unique feature , they are high number of chances of misdiagnosing the tumor with other peripheral fibro-osseous lesions. The prognosis of the tumor is good if detected early and a wide margin resection is performed to make the recurrence obsolete.
