Abstract:Osteosarcoma is a rare malignancy of the head and neck region. Surgicalexcision with wide margin remains the gold standard of treatment. Early andaggressive surgical intervention coupled with chemotherapy has been shown toincrease the median overall survival rate of the patient.We present five cases of osteosarcoma of the maxilla seen at NationalUniversity of Malaysia Hospital within a five-year period (1999-2004). None ofthe five patients were free from disease at the time of this report. Late presentationor defaulted treatment reduced their chance of cure. The aim of this paper is toshare our experience in the management of osteosarcoma of the maxilla.
