Twenty two cases of bone tumours were treated by resection and bone grafting. Autogenous bone graft was employed in all 22 cases supplemented with allograft in 2 cases. The primary diagnosis was GCT in 18 cases; Chondrosarcoma-2 cases and parosteal sarcoma and aneurysmal bone cyst-1 case each. Majority of lesions (13) were located around the knee. Complications included graft fracture (1 case) delayed union (1 case), neurovascular injury (1 case) and infection in 3 cases. There was no recurrence or distant metastases at an average of 2.2. Years follow up. Functional result was excellent in 7 cases, good in 10 cases, fair in 3 cases and poor in 2 cases. We recommend massive bone graft for reconstruction after tumour resection due to its simplicity, and low cost.
