Gout is a disorder characterized by deposition of monosodium urate crystals in different tissues within the body and especially the joints. Inflammatory arthritis is a typical manifestation of gout. New evidence from recent research has become available for both the diagnosis and treatment of patients with gout. The basic goal of treatment is lowering of the monosodium urate level (urate lowering therapy – ULT). Despite high frequency of the disease and the availability of effective drugs, only a minority of gout patients receive appropriate treatment. This paper is aimed at analyzing the possibility of comprehensive effective treatment of gout based on new data regarding the pathogenesis of gouty arthritis according to the recent recommendations.
