Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Friday, 8 December 2017 is Tietze syndrome.
Tietze syndrome (also called chondropathia tuberosa or costochondral junction syndrome) is a benign inflammation of one or more of the costal cartilages. It was first described in 1921 by the German surgeon Alexander Tietze (1864–1927).
Tietze syndrome is not the same as costochondritis. Tietze syndrome is differentiated from costochondritis by swelling of the costal cartilages, which does not appear in costochondritis. Like costochondritis, it was at one time thought to be associated with, or caused by, a viral infection acquired during surgery. This is now known not to be the case, as most sufferers have not had recent surgery.
This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 01:09 UTC on Friday, 8 December 2017.
