Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A case of a 72-year-old woman with nontraumatic right ankle pain linked to tophaceous gout of the subtalar joint is presented. This gouty attack was associated with adenomatous primary hyperparathyroidism. There are no reports in the literature of tophaceous gout in the subtalar joint, nor associated with primary hyperparathyroidism. The relationship between gout and hyperparathyroidism is discussed.
