Abstract: Recognizing the difficulty in (re)constructing the knowledge of determinants, manifestations and consequences of sports injuries (SI), this project has aimed to describe and analyse a review on SI studies from the Collective Health/Epidemiology and Physical Activity Group, Physical Education College, Unicamp. Once identified respective reference background, personal and athletic characteristics have been considered in nine modalities. About lesional aspects, the most frequent injury was sprain in lower limbs, occurring mainly during training period. In relation to methodology, the most adopted kind of study was the retroanalytic observational design. For data collection, the most used instrument was Refered Morbidity Survey. With regard to specificities, it was admitted as the situations most related to SI: male sex in athletism; longer pratice time in basketball; use of special footwear in classic dance; first college year in universitary physical education; movements referring to strain and contusion in Olympic gymnastics; multiple set training in muscle exercises; changing of rules, in volleyball. Obtained results point out, beyond other facts, to a desolating situation: the disarticulation between epidemiologic, clinical and sporting procedures of collaboration.
