ABSTRACT
Decompression sickness is a group of pathological processes occurring in the body, following its exposure to an excessive drop in atmospheric pressure. The paper presents a case of a 62-year-old patient with no substantial disease history, a long-standing professional military pilot who was diagnosed with multifocal, bone manifestation of decompression sickness during the diagnosis of right knee joint injury following a torsion injury. The case was presented to draw attention to the usefulness of occupational history in the process of diagnosing osteoarticular system diseases. Med Pr 2013;64(2):273–279
