A patient with coexistent Reiter's syndrome (RS) and tophaceous gout is described. The association of these two rheumatic diseases has not been previously reported. The reason for the rare association between gout and RS is unclear but possible explanations are reviewed. The diagnosis of gout should be considered in patients with RS who experience acute monoarticular or pauciarticular arthritis and characteristic cutaneous nodules.
