During the autopsy, there was a lush neoplastic proliferation affecting the left mandibular branch measuring 24 x 19.5 x 13 cm, multilobular aspect, that invaded the oral cavity, showed irregular surface with many exophytic nodules of difference sizes. When cut, the tumor had compact surface, whitish aspect, bone consistency and central necrosis. Microscopically, there were atypical proliferation of mesenchymal cells, marked pleomorphism and high mitotic index in large areas of bone matrix and chondroid. The diagnosis was based on clinical, pathological radiographic findings and confirmed by histopathological examination. This is the first report of primary mandibular chondroblastic osteosarcoma in bovine.
