Gout is a hereditary form of arthritis caused by an excess of uric acid in the blood causing recurrent attacks of acute arthritis usually in a single joint, followed by complete remission. Attacks result from deposits of monosodium urate crystals in and around the joints.
There are more that 18 documented types of gout which include Poor manís gout that indicates hard work, exposure, ill feeling and excessive use of malt liquors, gout in canines and Visceral gout in birds. The word arthritis is often used together with gout. So what exactly is arthritis then? It is rheumatism in which the inflammatory lesions are confined to the joints. There are over 100 types of arthritis. So then, what is rheumatism? This can be any of a variety of disorders characterized by inflammation, degeneration or metabolic disturbances of connective tissue structures, especially in joints and related structures, such as muscles, bursae, tendons and fibrous tissue. It is identified by pain, stiffness or limitation of movement in those parts. Gout can then be described in layman's terms as a medical condition usually characterized by recurrent attacks of acute and inflammatory arthritis - a red, tender to painful, hot, swollen joint. It drives from an ancient term "gutta" which referred to arthritis at the base of the big toe over 2000 years ago.
