Gout is called acute inflammation of the joints( polyarthritis) as a result of the deposition of uric acid crystals in them. A feature of the disease is the fact that exacerbation in the form of pains often occur suddenly during movement and acuity of pain sensations practically immobilizes a person. Hence the name "gout", which in Greek means "grabbing a leg" or "foot trap".The deposited uric acid crystals rapidly form a connective tissue, forming nodules called "tophi", which are one of the most characteristic( pathognomonic) signs of the disease. The causes of accumulation of uric acid are usually of a combined nature.
