well-differentiated osteosarcoma of the jaw
Wednesday 10 November 2010
The well-differentiated osteosarcoma of the jaw bones is rare, and is often confused with a variety of benign fibroosseous lesions.
The tumor cells are intimately related to the surfaces of elongated trabeculae of neoplastic woven bone that lacked osteoblastic rimming.
Well-differentiated gnathic osteosarcoma is a low-grade malignancy that may be successfully treated with wide local excision. The prognosis is excellent.
