Summary of "Acute Gout in Emergency Admissions - Patient Characteristics and Adherence of Care Processes to Current Guidelines."

Gout or hyperuricemia are both well known and common diseases. The prevalence of gout is increasing worldwide. Thus, patients with gout are becoming more common. Although there are several published guidelines for the management of gout, actual treatment of gout is inconsistent with these guidelines in many respects. Gout is usually treated by general practitioners (GP) in Germany. The aim of our study was to show which patients present to the emergency department and to record how treatment and clinical diagnostic testing of gout patients is performed in the emergency department of a university hospital in Germany. No such data have been published for Germany.
