Gout is a common form of arthritis, in which many of the risk factors, pathogenetic mechanisms, and clinical features have been recognized for years. Nevertheless, new information has become available regarding the normal physiologic role of uric acid as an antioxidant, and greater insight has been obtained regarding the inflammatory process in acute gout. New studies have improved our understanding of the role of genetic and environmental factors responsible for hyperuricemia, and we know more… 
Gout: a clinical and radiologic review.
A Case of Secondary Gout Associated with Essential Thrombocythemia
TLDR
A case of secondary gout is reported in a 66-year-old man with essential thrombocythemia, one of the myeloproliferative neoplasms, characterized by megakaryocytic hyperplasia in bone marrow and marked throm bocytosis.
Epidemiology and clinical manifestation of GOUT in Imam Khomeini Hospital in Tehran, Iran.
TLDR
The mean age and mean body mass index of the patients were similar to those in others studies and Hypertension was found to be a risk factor for gout.
Severe gouty arthritis refractory to anti-inflammatory drugs: treatment with anti-tumour necrosis factor alpha as a new therapeutic option.
TLDR
A 53 year old man with a history of gouty arthritis extending over several years had an acute kidney failure 2 years previously because of nephrolithiasis with urate calculi and had arterial hypertension and hypertriglyceridaemia.
Radiological Imaging in Arthritis: Current Status and Limitations
TLDR
MRI criteria have become accepted as part of the early disease classification, allowing the commencement of therapy before the radiological or clinical evidence of disease manifests, thus allowing treatment at a potentially reversible stage.
Approach to Polyarthritis for the Primary Care Physician
TLDR
The approach to diagnosing polyarthritis joint pain in the primary care setting is reviewed, and the use of certain laboratory studies including sedimentation rate, antinuclear antibody, and rheumatoid factor are discussed.
Imaging features of crystal-induced arthropathy.
Diagnostic approach to polyarticular joint pain.
TLDR
Six clinical factors are helpful in narrowing the possible causes of polyarticular joint pain: disease chronology, inflammation, distribution, extra-articular manifestations, disease course, and patient demographics.

TLDR
It is proposed that persistent hyperuricemia may protect against or decrease the expression of rheumatoid inflammation.

TLDR
It is proposed that persistent hyperuricemia may protect against or decrease the expression of rheumatoid inflammation.

Renal transplant-associated hyperuricemia and gout.

    Journal of the American Society of Nephrology : JASN
  • 2000
TLDR
This article will explore the metabolic basis of gout in allograft recipients, and the currently available methods for treating gout will be examined with particular emphasis on drug interactions and specific needs of the transplant patient.
Clinical Manifestations of Korean Female Gouty Patients
TLDR
A comparison with a control group of 72 randomly selected male patients with gout showed that the female patients were frequently receiving diuretics at the time of the attack and had significantly lower mean uric acid excretion, whereas significantly more male patients showed heavy alcohol consumption and precipitating events for an acute attack compared with thefemale patients.
Hyperuricemia in Psoriatic Arthritis Prevalence and Associated Features
TLDR
SUA in PsA is not associated with the extent of skin involvement but reflects metabolic changes, especially hypercholesterolemia and renal impairment, and the best predictors of hyperuricemia were elevated serum creatinine and elevated total cholesterol.

TLDR
Hypertriglyceridaemia and hyperuricaemia at the time of diagnosis are important, previously underestimated predictors of poor outcome in IgAN, although causality between these factors and progression cannot be inferred from the present study.
The interaction between uric acid level and other risk factors on the development of gout among asymptomatic hyperuricemic men in a prospective study.
TLDR
Uric acid level is the key factor for prevention of gout and needs constant monitoring, and other contributing or possible etiologic factors such as alcohol consumption, diuretics use, and excess weight gain carry an increased risk of g out attack among patients with hyperuricemia.
Community based epidemiological study on hyperuricemia and gout in Kin-Hu, Kinmen.
TLDR
Risk factors for hyperuricemia tended to be different with respect to sex and age and alcohol consumption and central obesity were independent predictors of gout amonghyperuricemic subjects irrespective of uric acid level.
