A variant of Tietze's syndrome occurring after reconstructive breast surgery.


Costosternal chondrodynia (Tietze's syndrome variant) should be considered in those rare patients who present with severe breast pain several months after reconstructive breast surgery. The authors treated 25 cases, 3 of which are discussed in detail, where the origin of the pain was traced to the costosternal cartilages. The differential diagnosis and management of this hitherto undescribed problem after breast surgery are discussed.
