We present a case of synovial and flexor tendons gouty involvement associated to the flexion contracture of a single digit. The case was treated surgically by tenosynovectomy and resection of the flexor superficialis tendon followed by arthrolysis of the proximal interphalangeal joint. This rare etiology of flexion contracture must be taken into account in every patient with a history of gout and tendon pathology.
