Gout is a disorder characterised by severe, painful joint inflammation due to the deposition in the joint of uric acid crystals.

 

Natural history of gout

Gout generally occurs in 'attacks' where a joint suddenly becomes red and painful. With appropriate management things settle down, but after a dietary discretion another flare up may happen. Eventually the joint may become permanently damaged.
