This is the third part of a review of the clinicopathologic features of intraosseous carcinoma of the jaws (IOCJ). In parts 1 and 2, we discussed metastatic and salivary-type and odontogenic carcinomas, respectively. This part deals with primary intraosseous squamous cell carcinoma. Again, based on a critical approach, we emphasize histopathologic features, diagnostic difficulties, discuss histogenesis, and highlight areas of uncertainty. The 3-part review also offers speculations on how future studies may refine our understanding of the unusual and interesting IOCJ.
