Finding the cause of a knee problem is a really difficult and challenging feature in general practice. The age of the presentation of a painful knee has varied significance as many conditions are age related. Onset of the pain is also important in determining the diagnosis as a rapid onset of painful knee swelling after injury indicates blood in the joint. Some of the common knee problems that can be misdiagnosed include osteonecrosis, loose bodies, gout, pseudogout, sarcoidosis, Paget’s disease and meniscal tears. There are several problems relating to knee problems that are difficult to diagnose but fortunately most of these problems can be diagnosed with the help of an X- ray.
