Because primary intraosseous squamous cell carcinoma (PIOSCC) is rare, dentists are likely to misdiagnose it. It is critical for dentists to recognize the possibility of malignancy because the prognosis of such patients depends largely on how early appropriate treatment is commenced. In this study, five cases of PIOSCC were analyzed in detail. Three of the five cases were immediately referred to our department. The other two cases were delayed in referral to our department because surgical procedures were performed by dentists without panoramic radiographic examination. Dentists should perform a panoramic radiograph examination on all patients who have unknown focal pain in the jaw to screen for PIOSCC.


KEY WORDS: Carcinoma, squamous cell - Mandible - Radiography, panoramic
