Chondroblastic osteosarcoma (COS), a subgroup of intramedullary osteosarcoma (OS), is the most common osteosarcoma that occurs in adolescents and early adulthood. The COS has similar clinical and radiological features to those of conventional OS. We present a case of 20-year-old male patient with the chief complaint of pain and swelling in the left zygomatic region. The computed tomography (CT) and three-dimensional (3D) CT face showed erosion, calcific foci, sunray type of spicules suggestive of OS. On fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) examination, initial diagnosis was malignant chondroid lesion, with differential diagnosis of mesenchymal chrondrosarcoma, COS on incisional biopsy and finally COS on excisional biopsy. The patient underwent radical resection of left zygomatic arch, followed by chemotherapy. Although clinically unsuspected in this unusual site, histopathology along with immunohistochemistry (IHC) results confirmed the COS. Because zygomatic location of COS is very rare, this report aimed to discuss clinical, radiographic, histopathologic, IHC findings and diagnostic pitfalls of COS in light of the literature.
