     - Ewing's sarcoma: (diaphyseal region);
     - Chondroblastoma
     - Chondromyxoid fibroma
     - Fibrous Dysplasia
     - Eosinophilic granuloma
     - Aneurysmal bone cyst
     - Simple bone cyst

     - Osteoma: middle 1/3 (rare)

- Pearls:
    - reconstruction of the proximal tibia following tumor resection is associated w/ a high rate of complications;
    - a major unsolved problem involves reattachment of the extensor mechanism;
          - patellar tendon reattachment to a prosthesis is generally unsuccessful;
          - w/ allografting of the proximal tibia, consider transfer of the extensor mechanism into the medial gastrocnemius, w/ postop immobilization in extension
