Abstract: 
Introduction: Primary and metastatic bone tumors are rare in patella bone. Chondroblastoma and giant cell tumor have been reported in patella more frequently than others. Treatment and post surgical knee function depend on the type of tumor and surgical procedure. Regarding the scarcity of patellar tumors there are little reports about it.Method: In this retrospective cross-sectional study, 13 patients with patella tumor treated from 1995-2006 were studied. Radiologic findings, clinical symptoms, pathologic reports and surgical outcomes were obtained from patients’ profiles. The frequency of patella bone tumors and their symptoms as well as surgical outcomes were evaluated in a long term follow up.Results: The most frequent patella tumor was chondroblostom (5 cases of 13) followed by giant cell tumor (3 cases), metastasis (2 cases), aneurism small bone cyst (2 cases) and simple bone cyst (1 case). Knee pain and effusion were the most common symptoms. Knee range of motion and quadriceps strength and function were better in patella saving procedures comparing to total patellectomy. There was one case of recurrence in patients underwent patella saving operation. Conclusion: In our patients, chondroblastoma and giant cell tumor were respectively the most frequent patella tumors. Since knee range of motion and quadriceps strength and function has been better in patella saving procedures compared to patellectomy cases, this procedure is recommended in the treatment of patients with patella tumors.
