Abstract

A case of fibrosarcoma in a 4-year-old male child is reported. Primary fibrosarcomas of bone in the head and neck region are rare. The histological appearance of the tumour is related to its grade of differentiation. It could present a high level of cellularity and the amount of collagen is variable. The accepted treatment is radical surgery; however, metastases could occur in the lungs. This article is presented to highlight the rarity of fibrosarcomas in the jaws of children.
