Abstract

A 83-year-old man presented to the emergency department with signs of diabetes mellitus de novo and a yellow coloured abnormality of his left index finger. A plain radiograph of the left hand showed destruction of the proximal interphalangeal joint of digit II. With use of polarised light microscopy, the diagnosis 'gouty tophus' was established.
