Telangiectatic osteosarcoma (TOS), an uncommon variant of osteosarcoma, involving skull bones is extremely rare. We present clinico-pathological, imageological and treatment outcome of a primary TOS of occipital bone in a 30-year-old woman and review the previously reported skull bone TOS. We suggest that TOS should be included in the differential diagnosis of destructive lytic lesions involving the skull bones. As radical surgical procedures are not applicable to skull bones, the outcome is poor even with adjuvant chemotherapy.
