[Roentgen examinations of joints in patients with gouty arthritis].

[Article in German]


The radiological examination of the joints affected is necessary for the diagnosis, differential diagnosis and the assessment of the course of the chronic gout. The roentgen-morphological individual symptoms develop depending on the quantity-time-quotient of the precipitation of urates. Frequently apart from degenerative, destructive or osteoplastic symptoms only the signs of a chronic arthritis are an expression of the clinically existing chronic gout. The interpretation of the individual symptoms must be done taking into consideration the total clinical findings. In the primary attack of gout roentgen-morphological alterations at the joints are not to be expected.
