Parosteal osteosarcoma is a rare malignancy of the bone that usually arises in the long bones. Involvement of the oral cavity is rare. Only 12 cases of intraoral parosteal osteosarcoma have been reported in the English language literature. This paper defines the major clinical, radiographic and histologic features of parosteal osteosarcoma and illustrates these with a case of a 33-year-old male presenting with a three-month history of a painless enlarging lump in the right maxilla. A critical and comprehensive review of the English language literature is also provided.
