A variety of microcrystals may be deposited and can induce an inflammatory response. The three most common types of crystal-induced arthropathy are gout, calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate deposition disease, and calcium hydroxyapatite deposition disease. Each has a characteristic clinical presentation, crystal type that may be aspirated… CONTINUE READING
