An approach to hyperuricemia and gout.

Abstract

Arthrocentesis and patient and family histories make gout relatively easy to diagnose. The next step is to distinguish between primary and secondary hyperuricemia. Hyperuricemia results from either impaired renal excretion or excessive production of uric acid--or both. Determining the cause guides the choice of therapy.
