Multifocal osteosarcoma (MFOS), osteosarcoma involving multiple sites, is a rare variant of osteosarcoma. When the lesions appear within 6 months of initial presentation of the tumor, it is known as synchronous MFOS. Synchronous MFOS has an incidence of 1%–3% only. Moreover, the histological variant of small cell osteosarcoma is even rarer. A case of 14-year-old male with synchronous MFOS of small cell type involving frontal and mandibular bone simultaneously is being reported here. It poses a dilemma to both the clinician and the pathologist to diagnose whether it represents multiple primary tumor or metastatic disease.
