Abstract

Giant cell-rich osteosarcoma of the jaw (JGCRO) is very rare but it is diagnostically important because of its poor prognosis compared to other variants of osteosarcoma. We report a rare case of recurrent JGCRO initially diagnosed as an ossifying fibroma. The clinical presentation, radiologic and histologic features and the intermediate outcome of treatment of the case are highlighted.
