Abstract In Japan 114 cases of osteosarcoma of the maxillofacial region have been reported during the past 60 years. The average age at the onset of the disease in this region was about one or two decades later than that of osteosarcoma of other regions. Females were affected more frequently (59.6\%) than males (40.4\%). The mandible was more frequently affected (58.8\%) than the maxilla (41.2\%). Swelling was the conspicuous symptom for osteosarcoma of the maxillofacial region. Most patients received surgical treatment with or without radiation and chemotherapy; however, the prognosis is poor, regardless of the type of treatment.
