Ribbing Disease is a rare yet probably under-reported etiology for severe
pain of the long bones, especially of the tibiae. Only few reported cases were
published without any clear guidelines for diagnosis and treatment. Patients
often go unnoticed for years until diagnosis is made, assuming diagnosis is
made at all. There are few treatment options which can alleviate the patient
symptoms, albeit none directly address the disease's etiology.
