Gout is an inflammatory condition due to the deposition of monosodium urate crystals in joints or soft tissues characterized by asymptomatic periods followed by brief painful, inflammatory flare-ups. This poster presents histologic findings from an 81 year old female cadaver with markedly enlarged joints of the hands that are suggestive of chronic tophaceous gout. Once a patient has reached this chronic stage, the disease is no longer painful due to the encapsulated tophi, supported by the lack of inflammation on the histological slides. However, the tophi also suggest that the individual experienced limited range of motion in the affected joints.
