Gout of the rich and famous.

Abstract

A number of sources on the subject of gout, and particularly its role in history, were consulted. Highlights are presented to illustrate popular conceptions of the social implications of gout. It is indicated that the consequences of this affliction may be disastrous to empires, yet are not always viewed as entirely negative for individual sufferers.
