Is Tietze Syndrome & Costochondritis a form of Arthritis?
The definition I have is: a painful swelling of the rib region of the chest, over the junction of bone &cartilage. Th cause is unknown & the condition usually resolves without treatment, but in some cases local injections of corticosteroids are required.
Thjanks for any help & info.
