The wide array of possible presenting symptoms and the episodic nature of relapsing polychondritis (RP) may result in a significant delay in diagnosis. In a review of 66 patients, the elapsed time from patient presentation for medical care for a related symptom to diagnosis was reported to be 2.9 years.[19] In fact, one third of patients with diagnosed relapsing polychondritis see five or more physicians before the correct diagnosis is made.
