Osteosarcoma (OS) is a malignant bone tumor which is found primarily in adolescents, with the distal femur as the most common location. OS with a jaw primary is present in only about 10% of cases and the risk of recurrence is considered to be decreased in the jaw versus other primary locations. We present a unique case of a patient with localized OS of the jaw with an isolated recurrence in her bone marrow almost 5 years after completion of initial treatment.
