Tophaceous Hands Photographs

I use these tophaceous gout images to illustrate my tophaceous gout guidelines within the gout symptoms pages.

I explain tophaceous gout treatment in the treatment for gout to remove tophi guidelines.

Tophaceous Hands Photographs

Figure A depicts the hands of a patient with severe tophaceous gout. Figure B depicts the patient’s hands after 7 years of treatment with allopurinol and probenecid to maintain his serum urate level at 4 mg/dL. Even the largest tophi may be dissolved with use of appropriate medication and with sufficient patient adherence.
