Osteosarcoma is an aggressive malignant tumor of the bone. It can occur in any bone, but long bones are affected more such as femur (42%), tibia (19%), and humerus (10%), compared to short bones such as skull, head, and neck region (<10%). The typical radiographic appearance of sunray pattern and Codman's triangle is highly suggestive of osteosarcoma. Early diagnosis and surgical treatment is the key to high survival rate. Here, we present a case with typical radiographic appearance of osteosarcoma arising from skull and scapula in a 25-year-old male patient.
