Abstract

Angiosarcoma is a rare malignant neoplasm of mesenchymal origin. It is characterised by endothelial differentiation. Lesions are most commonly seen in the head and neck region, especially on the skin of the scalp in elderly men. Oral and intraosseous lesions are comparatively rare. We report an exceedingly rare case of primary intraosseous angiosarcoma in a 79-year-old male arising in the mandibular left retromolar region.
