LISANTI, Raúl; GATICA, David; ABAL, Javier  and  DI GIORGI. Policondritis recidivante, un desafío diagnóstico. Rev. am. med. respir. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.2, pp.146-149. ISSN 1852-236X.

Relapsing Polychronditis is an uncommon, systemic disease that affects the cartilage structures, primarily the elastic cartilage of the ears, nose, joints and the tracheobronchial tree. We present the case of a 63 year-old female with a history of tracheobronchial stenosis, clinical chondritis, saddleback nose and neurosensorial hypoacusis. The diagnosis of Relapsing Polychronditis was reached. Due to its low incidence rate, clinical diagnosis and similarity to other diseases, the diagnosis of this disease always represents a challenge.

Keywords : Polychondritis relapsing; Tracheal stenosis; Cough.
