[Diagnosis and treatment of Tietze's syndrome].Vestn Khir Im I I Grek 1975; 114(6):10-3VK
In this work an estimation of the current state of the problem of the Tietz syndrome incidence is given, and data on observation and treatment of 78 patients are reported. A scheme of etiopathogenesis is suggested. It is the authors' opinion that a tumorous neoplasm is nothing but a regenerate at the site of a microtrauma of the costal cartilage. The diagnosis of the Tietz syndrome is difficult, therefore, roentgenography and needle biopsy should be the principal adjuvant diagnostic methods along with the clinic.
