Gout : A genetic or acquired disorder of uric acid metabolism that leads to hyperuricemia and consequent acute and chronic arthritis. This basically occurs because of body fluids getting oversaturated with monosodium urate .MONOSODIUM URATE getting deposited in and around joint in the form of crystals giving rise to inflammation of the joints. Recurrent episodes of acute inflammation of joints give rise to distructive changes in the joints. MONOSODIUM URATE crystals can also get deposited in other tissues giving rise to inflammatory foci.
