Abstract

Gout is a disorder of uric acid metabolism that causes deposition of Monosodium Urate (MSU) crystals in joint spaces, which, in turn, elicit an acute inflammatory reaction. We present a case in which diagnosis of gout was made by fine needle aspiration of tophus. FNAC of gouty tophus is an easy alternative to synovial biopsy. It is simpler, easier and less painful.
