Gout is a common inflammatory arthritis resulting
from the crystallisation of uric acid within joints.
It is often, but not always, associated with
hyperuricaemia. It is common, affecting around
2% of men aged over 30 years and women aged
over 50 years, and its prevalence appears to
be increasing.1 In Australian general practice, it is
in the top 20 of chronic diseases managed
and is seen at a rate of six per 1000 general
practitioner encounters.2
