Bone tumors and tumor-like conditions are rare entities of bones, and most are located around the knee. It is continuous dilemma if the bone lesion origins from the trauma.Our team has been consulted for 17 knee trauma associated with bone lesions. Lesions of bone were diagnosed as: tumor-like lesions; benign bone tumors; benign soft tissue tumor; aggressive bone tumor; malignant bone tumors. Three patients had foot thrombophlebitis and for their treatment has been consulted cardiologist.From 13 patients with tumor-like lesions and benign bone tumors only 4 were operated. Corticosteroids were applied in the bone cysts in 2 patients. Patients with aggressive bone tumors had their lesions excised and bone cement was used for the defect. Malignant bone tumors were treated with preoperative neoadjuvant and following surgery postoperative chemotherapy regimen. Bone lesions can be easily overseen. The fact that more than 60% of bone tumors are in the vicinity of the knee makes the diagnostic decision of knee trauma more difficult.
