Author(s): Dr. Sanjeev Kumar Sinha, Dr. Hemant Kumar
Abstract: According to previous researches, distribution of primary bone tumors is variable in different parts of the world. Highest rates are seen in Europe and the USA, but Asian countries have lower incidence and prevalence. Hence from the above literature findings there was a need to study the bone tumours in the childrens from the north Indian region. The study was planned by enrolling 25 patients identified with the pain, swelling, non-healing fractures of bones. The patient’s enrolled patients were admitted to Upgraded Department of Paediatrics in Patna Medical College And Hospital, Patna From April 2016 to Dec 2016. The X-ray of affected bone was done in all the childrens. Biopsy was taken from the lesion for histopathological diagnosis of the lesion. The aim of the study was the demographic and clinical description of bone tumours in the paediatric age group. The most common sites were comparable with literature data except for an increased incidence in the fibula. The data generated from present studies will help in rapid diagnosis and management of bone tumours.
