BACKGROUND Bony lesions are diverse in form and differ in their gross and histopathological features. The key to accurate recognition of bone tumours is utilisation of an integrated approach involving clinical data, radiological and histopathological findings. The aim of the study is to study the incidence of bone tumours and tumour-like lesions in relation to age and gender among the patients by doing histopathological examination and by doing correlation between pathological diagnosis and

Out of the 97 cases, 94 cases were diagnosed as bone tumours and tumour-like lesions. Out of the total 94 cases, osteosarcoma (24.47%) and giant cell tumours of bone (20.21%) are most common bone tumours amongst malignant and benign tumours, respectively. CONCLUSION Histopathological diagnosis have a superior role in the diagnosis of bone lesions as confirmed diagnosis can be given, which when correlated with clinical and radiological findings helps the clinicians to take the correct decision for proper management.
