Gouty Arthritis Picture
Gouty Arthritis s a form of arthritis caused by the accumulation of uric acid
crystals in joints. It is an intensely painful disease, which in most cases
affects only one joint most commonly the big toe. Gout occurs when excess uric
acid (a normal waste product) collects in the body, and needle‐like urate
crystals deposit in the joints. This may happen because either uric acid
production increases or, more often, the kidneys cannot remove uric acid from
the body well enough.
