Patient G., male, 32 years old was admitted to Chengdu Rheumatism hospital with the complains of pain and ulceration at the site of big tophaceous stone of fourth finger joint on the right hand as well as the pain and restricted movements in other right hand joints (elbow, wrist, fingers). Patient was first diagnosed with the gout approximately 10 years prior; by his own choice did not receive any urate-lowering treatment, only using oral analgesics during gout attacks. After surgery and following urate lowering therapy patient has noted functional improvement and reduction of pain. Decrease in serum urate levels from 586.7 to 469.3 μmol/L was reported. Wounds healing took from 1 to 1.5 weeks, with the wound on fourth metacarpophalangeal joint of the right hand being the last one to heal due to the wide ulceration defect. The longer follow-up period is needed to fully evaluate functional outcome (6-month follow-up examinations were scheduled).
