Osteosarcomas of the jaws are not uncommon entities but unusual histological variants do cause difficulties in the differential diagnosis. A recently described histological variant of osteosarcoma is the rosette forming osteosarcoma which bears close similarity to round cell tumors leading employment of a battery of immuno histo chemical markers despite the fact that osteosarcomas are best diagnosed by routine sections. In this report two cases of osteosarcoma with rosette forming features are illustrated for early recognition of this entity.
