[Tietze's syndrome: importance of differential diagnosis and role of CT].
G Chir 1994; 15(4):171-4GC

Abstract

A case of Tietze's syndrome is reported. A 55-year-old woman had experienced left anterior chest pain and tender swelling of the left second costosternal junction for one month. CT showed a focal enlargement of the left second costal cartilage with partial calcification. Six months later a complete recovery was registered and a second CT scan was negative. These clinical and CT findings are consistent with Tietze's syndrome.
