Extract

Ribbing disease is a rare bone dysplasia characterized by thickening of the diaphysis of the long bones of the lower extremities in young adults. Patients with Ribbing disease typically present with pain in one tibia, but the disease often sequentially involves both tibiae and both femora. It is often initially diagnosed as low-grade osteomyelitis, but it may also be confused with other causes of increased bone density. The level of pain is variable and may be severe.
