Crystal arthropathies: recognizing and treating "the gouch".Prim Care. 2010 Dec; 37(4):703-11, v.PC
Gout is a common disease and the prevalence is increasing. Chronic hyperuricemia (uric acid serum levels >6.8 mg/dL) is a key feature. Treating to a target uric acid level of 6.0 mg/dL is recommended. In addition to cochicine, probenecid, and allopurinol, feboxostat is a new option for urate-lowering therapy.
