Abstract: Gout is a heterogeneous group of diseases resulting from tissue deposition of monossodium urate or uric acid crystals from extracellular fluids supersaturated with respect to this end product of human purine metabolism. The clinical manifestations are recurrent attacks of a unique type of acute inflammatory arthritis (acute gout), accumulation of potentially destructive crystal aggregates (tophi), especially in connective tissue structures. The authors report a patient with one year of follow-up, presenting chronic tophaceous gout and renal disease with severe deposition of monossodium urate crystals in joint and periarticular structures without ear cartilage involvement. They discuss about the follow-up forms of gout, its biological and clinical aspects, and factors implicated with the ear absence of crystal precipitation.
