Slipping rib syndrome is a poorly recognised cause of chest and abdominal pain. The syndrome occurs when the medial fibrous attachments of  the eighth, ninth, or tenth ribs are inadequate or ruptured, allowing their cartilage tips to slip superiorly and impinge on the intervening intercostal nevre. One patient with the slipping rib syndrome presenting as chest pain was reported and the appropriate literature was reviewed.
