  55. 55. What Happened to the toe? Why is it swollen?
  56. 56. A CASE STUDY : GOUT • • • A 45 YEAR OLD MAN AWOKE FROM SLEEP WITH A PAINFUL AND SWOLLEN RIGHT GREAT TOE. ON THE PREVIOUS NIGHT HE HAD EATEN A MEAL OF FRIED LIVER AND ONIONS, AFTER WHICH HE MET WITH HIS POKER GROUP AND DRANK A NUMBER OF BEERS. HE SAW HIS DOCTOR THAT MORNING, “GOUTY ARTHRITIS” WAS DIAGNOSED, AND SOME TESTS WERE ORDERED. HIS SERUM URIC ACID LEVEL WAS ELEVATED AT 8.0 mg/dL (NL < 7.0 mg/dL). THE MAN RECALLED THAT HIS FATHER AND HIS GRANDFATHER, BOTH OF WHOM WERE ALCOHOLICS, OFTEN COMPLAINED OF JOINT PAIN AND SWELLING IN THEIR FEET.
  57. 57. A CASE STUDY : GOUT • THE DOCTOR RECOMMENDED THAT THE MAN USE NSAIDS FOR PAIN AND SWELLING, INCREASE HIS FLUID INTAKE (BUT NOT WITH ALCOHOL) AND REST AND ELEVATE HIS FOOT. HE ALSO PRESCRIBED ALLOPURINOL. • A FEW DAYS LATER THE CONDITION HAD RESOLVED AND ALLOPURINOL HAD BEEN STOPPED. A REPEAT URIC ACID LEVEL WAS OBTAINED (7.1 mg/dL). THE DOCTOR GAVE THE MAN SOME ADVICE REGARDING LIFE STYLE CHANGES.
  58. 58. Uric Acid Excretion • Humans – excreted into urine as insoluble crystals • Birds, terrestrial reptiles, some insects – excrete insoluble crystals in paste form – Excess amino N converted to uric acid • (conserves water) • Others – further modification : Uric Acid  Allantoin  Allantoic Acid  Urea  Ammonia
  59. 59. Gout • Impaired excretion or overproduction of uric acid • Uric acid crystals precipitate into joints (Gouty Arthritis), kidneys, ureters (stones) • Lead impairs uric acid excretion – lead poisoning from pewter drinking goblets – Fall of Roman Empire? • Xanthine oxidase inhibitors inhibit production of uric acid, and treat gout • Allopurinol treatment – hypoxanthine analog that binds to Xanthine Oxidase to decrease uric acid production
