RESTREPO ESCOBAR, Mauricio; GONZALEZ NARANJO, Luis Alonso and VASQUEZ DUQUE, Gloria María. Coexistence of psoriatic spondylitis and gout: a case report. Rev.Colomb.Reumatol. [online]. 2011, vol.18, n.3, pp. 247-250. ISSN 0121-8123.
Despite the commonly accepted association between psoriasis and hyperuricemia there are few reports of gout in patients with psoriasis and many less frequent reporting the coexistence of gout and psoriatic arthritis. We report a patient diagnosed with gouty arthritis and psoriatic arthritis, spondylarthritis variety, and we emphasize that it is the first time that this association is reported in the literature.
