An autopsy case of osteosarcoma derived from the right mandible was reported.
The case was a 64year-old-female who received radiotherapy (60Co) for Hodgkin's disease in the right neck 15 years prior to the development of her osteosarcoma.
By autopsy findings, large nodular growths in the right facial region and the lung metastases of the osteosarcoma were remarkable. No recurrence of Hodgkin's disease was revealed by autopsy.
The authors considered that right mandibular osteosarcoma were suspected to be radiationinduced according to the long latent interval and the development of the sarcoma derived from the same location of the irradiation field.
