Bone tumors are a diagnostic challenge for orthopedists, radiologists, oncologists and pathologists dedicated to the study of these lesions, it is necessary to consider multiple factors (epidemiological, clinical, imaging and pathology) for an effective diagnosis and treatment. Three cases of patients are presented: the first 43-year-old female, the second 15-year-old male and the third 8-year-old male with symptoms of pain in the lower limbs associated with bone lesions, which were diagnosed as tumoral lesions, tumor of giant cells, metaphyseal fibrous defect and aneurysmal bone cyst, respectively, which did not receive the best treatment option, so it was necessary to carry out new procedures. Due to the complexity of managing these patients, we carry out this work and with it we expose the need for the existence of a multidisciplinary team prepared to take on the challenge of diagnosis and treatment of bone tumors.
