Aim: This study aimed to document the total number of osteosarcomas of bone diagnosed in a referral hospital differentiating from its close mimics with biologic behavior. Materials and Methods: This study analyzes the total cases diagnosed as osteosarcoma from 2014 to 2016 in the Department of Pathology, SCB Medical College, Cuttack, Odisha. Results: A total of 21 cases were diagnosed with osteosarcoma, the most common subtype being conventional osteosarcoma. This subtype constituted the majority (18 cases); the age range varied between 14 and 20 years. This article describes two rare histologic subtypes; small cell variant and giant cell-rich osteosarcoma, a rare bone involvement, like mandibular jaw bone, in an elderly female was also documented along with histologic features of each one. Conclusion: Three cases with unusual histologic subtypes and rare bone involvement, gnathic type, prompted us to report these cases.
