Gouty arthritis is caused by deposition of needle like crystals of uric acid in the joint, which causes inflammation. There is also an uncommon form of gout called pseudo gout that is caused by the formation of rhomboid crystals of calcium pyrophosphate. A single joint, the main place where gouty arthritis commonly strikes is the single joint, most commonly the big toe. According to survey about 75% of people are affected at least once. However it also affects the foot, ankles, knees, wrists, fingers, elbows. Men are more diseased of gouty arthritis than women. But it seems rare in children and young adults. Sometimes pseudo gout (cppd) can be confused with gouty arthritis because symptoms are little bit same. But however in cppd deposit are prepared up of small calcium phosphate crystals and in gouty it’s from pure uric acid. So we should always check the symptoms which are associated with gout.
