Abstract

The principles governing the pathogenesis and treatment of gout have been established with greater clarity than those for almost any other rheumatic disease. The benefits of treatment include the virtual cure of a disabling and deforming disease. Adherence to proper management guidelines provides predictable relief of symptoms for patients and great satisfaction for the treating physician.
