Back ground : Knee joint is highly complicated mechanism composed of a wide variety of specialized connective tissue which have to at one and the same time bear weight but resist considerably shearing and angulations stresses ,posses mobility without loss of stability ,avoid fatigue but act as a powerful unit for propulsion. Objective: To analysis the factors responsible for the fracture. Material and Methods: Data of thirty patients admitted in a medical college hospital was collected in a pre-designed proforma. Variables: include – age, sex, profession, Type of accidents, side of involvement, and associated injuries if any. Statistical analysis: expressed in terms of simple proportion and ratio. Findings: The male female ratio was 2.3: 1. Road traffic accidents were the cause of fracture in 80 % of the cases rest 20 % was fall from a height. 43.33 % did not have any associated injuries .36.66 % injured were from service class and 26.66 %were house wives. More than 62.5 % house wives received injury because of fall from a height. Conclusion : Involvement of high proportion of service class was because of their higher exposure, similarly more proportion of females got injuries because of fall indicate their negligence .This all indicate that an awareness drive have to be carried out about various causes of accidents among the masses.
