Abstract: Osteosarcoma (OS) of the jaws is a relatively rare malignant bone tumor. Like, its counterpart in the long bones, OS affecting the head and neck region shows distinct yet diverse clinical, histologic and prognostic characteristics. Here, we report a rare case of OS in a 12-year-old child, who came with a bony swelling in the right mandibular posterior region, with a radiographic presentation of sunburst appearance, the histopathological examination con?rmed the diagnosis. The patient underwent wide local excision with hemimandibulectomy followed by free fibula flap reconstruction under general anesthesia and is currently undergoing regular follow-up examination.

Keywords: osteosarcoma, head and neck, free fibula flap
