Gout

Gout is characterized by hyperuricemia, recurrent acute arthritis and, often deposition of urates in the skin as nodules, known as gouty tophi; yellow red papules tending to coalesce into multilocular nodules and plaques, most commonly on the helix and ante-helix of the ear and on the fingers.

Treatment:

  • Gouty tophi clear with anti-uricemic therapy such as allopurinol.
  • Particularly symptomatic lesions not responding to such therapy can be surgically excised.
