Dibaba was due to make her debut over the distance on April 21, but has aggravated a previous shin injury in training.
The Ethiopian said: "I have been in training for the London Marathon, but the increase in mileage has caused a flare up of my previous lower leg injury.
"As a result, I won't be able to compete in this year's London Marathon but I look forward to making my marathon debut there next year."
