Pseudogout is a condition in which deposits of calcium pyrophosphate crystals in the
joints cause attacks of arthritis. The calcium-containing deposits are called
chondrocalcinosis. The symptoms are similar to gout in that the pain and swelling occurs
in the joints around the elbows, wrists, ankles, knees, fingers, and toes. However, unlike
gout, pseudogout can also affect the hips and shoulder joints, and attacks are not as
severe. Below is a picture show the red swollen and inflamed area you
can get around the ankle from pseudogout.
