Summary of "Crystal-proven gout patients have an increased mortality due to cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and infectious diseases especially when having tophi and/or high serum uric acid levels: a prospective cohort study."

To investigate the cause-specific mortality and the possible involved clinical characteristics with increased mortality in a cohort of 700 patients with crystal-proven gout. The cause-specific mortality of gout was compared to the mortality of the general population.
