Morphological pattern, clinical presentation and distribution according to age, sex and site of 84 cases of non- neoplastic and neoplastic bone lesions were studied over a period of five years (Retrospective period of 4 years and prospective period of one year). Maximum number of patients were in the age group of 11-30 years. Males were more frequently affected than female, the male to female ratio being 1.9:1. Femur was the most common involved site followed by tibia. Pain/tenderness was the most common clinical feature. Chronic non-specific osteomyelitis was the most common bone lesion (19%) of all the bone pathologies. Osteochondroma was the most common benign bone tumour (14.2%). Metastatic bone tumour was the most common malignant bone lesion (7.1%), while osteosarcoma was the most common primary malignant bone tumour (3.6%). The ratio of benign to malignant bone tumours was 1.8:1. The percentage of tumour like lesions was 50%, while benign bone tumours were 32.1% and malignant bone tumours were 17.86%.
