Gout is a disease with clear etiopathogeny, precise diagnosis and effective treatment. Nevertheless, a significant percentage of patients develops tophic chronic gout. Its presence is correlated with the time of evolution and the degree of elevation of the uric acid level. By performing, from the scope of the primary Health Care, an early diagnosis and suitable treatment, we will be able to reduce acute attacks, prevent chronic arthropathy and minimize extraarticular complications in patients with hyperuricaemia.
