Computed tomography of Tietze syndrome.
J Comput Assist Tomogr 1984; 8(1):20-3JC

Abstract

Six patients with clinical features suggestive of Tietze syndrome had a thoracic computed tomographic (CT) examination following a normal plain film or tomographic examination (or both) of the affected costochondral junction. A chest wall mass was excluded in all six patients. The CT findings included enlargement of the costal cartilage at the site of complaint (two patients), ventral angulation of the involved costal cartilage (two patients), and normal anatomy of the costochondral junction (two patients). Exclusion of a chest wall mass by CT may obviate the need for operative intervention.
