Tietze’s syndrome, also known as Costochondritis, is the swelling of the costochondral joint over the ribs and breastbone cartilage. The costochondral joint is the area of cartilage that joins the ribs and the sternum. The cause of Tietze’s syndrome is currently unknown, but in some cases has originated due to chest injury, sever coughing, upper respiratory tract infections, or physical strain. Tiete’s syndrome is a rare condition that is more common in young adults. There is no cure for Tietze’s syndrome, but symptoms can be relieved with rest and the use of anti-inflammatory drugs. Without treatment, Tietze’s syndrome often improves after several weeks; however, the symptoms can come and go for several years.
