Osteosarcoma of the Mandible: a Case Report with CT, MRI and Scintigraphy

Osteosarcomas are especially rare in the mandible and maxilla, representing 1.6% of all bony malignant tumours. In this article, we described a case of osteosarcoma of the mandible. Computed tomography (CT) image showed a well-circumscribed homogeneous mass, with nonhomogeneous contrast enhancement. T1-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MR) image showed intermediate signal intensity on, and after administration the lesion showed signal intensity lower than muscle. T2-weighted MR image showed heterogeneous high signal intensity. Bone scintigraphy revealed monostatic involvement of the mandible with a homogenous intense uptake pattern. Ga-67 citrate scintigraphy revealed significantly increased uptake. Histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of osteosarcoma.
