The painful knee in skeletally immature patients is a common complaint and a multifactorial problem. Knee pain may be due to acute trauma or the insidious onset of a chronic disease. The specific injury pattern and the complexity of the musculosceletal system during the period of growth result in certain diseases which differ significantly in etiology, differential diagnosis and therapy from adult pathologies. The knowledge of typical disorders, their clinical appearance and possible options for their treatment is essential for the management of these diseases. However, therapeutic options in skeletally-immature patients often remain controversial. Besides the discussion of typical causes of knee pain, this article is intended to give insight into the current therapeutic guidelines.
