Osteosarcoma is the most common primary malignant bone tumour with a bimodal peak. But its extraskeletal variant is very rare. It arises exclusively in soft tissue without at any skeletal attachment. It accounts for 2% of all soft tissue sarcomas. It is usually diagnosed as an incidental finding during imaging. Here, we are presenting a case of extraskeletal osteosarcoma diagnosed incidentally during imaging in a 30 years old male for its rarity.
