Author(s): M. R Biyani, M. N Ayya, V. S Velingkar

Gout is an age-old disease for clinicians, still having many secrets that need to be explored for improving knowledge with respect to uric acid metabolism and monosodium urate crystal-induced inflammation. Despite centuries of study of gout and availability of effective treatment for most patients, the proper diagnosis and treatment are still problematic. In the present review attempts are made to understand various aspects of gout in terms of causes, epidemiology, pathophysiology, site of action for antigout agents, diet, management, treatment, recent innovation and scope for further research.
