Description: The majority of these tumours present between 20 - 40 yrs and only 3% are found in the immature skeleton. The usual sites are in the bones adjacent to the knee, distal end of radius and occasionally in the sacrum or pelvis. The probability of a particular bone tumour location is often related to the relatively greater normal bone growth in that area. With large tumours, the site of origin is inferred from the centre of radius of the mass. The osteoclastoma is related to an apophysis or joint margin.
