With the exception of multiple myelomas, osteosarcoma is the most frequently occurring primary malignant bone tumor with an overall incidence of 1:100,000/year. It has greatest predilection for the metaphyses, most frequently femur and tibia. However, osteosarcomas affecting the craniofacial bones are infrequent. Two main types: intramedullary and juxtacortical varieties are seen. Juxtacortical variety is further subdivided into periosteal and parosteal variants. Due to its rarity, only 13 cases of parosteal osteosarcoma have been reported till date. A 35-year-old male patient with affected postirradiated mandible is being reported as the 14th case of this kind with its unique benign presentation and less aggressive nature.
