Abstract: Gout was first described by Hippocratus. The term ‘gout’ is derived from Latin word ‘gutta’ and French word gote, both meaning a drop of liquid. Several hundred years ago gout was thought to be caused by drops of viscous humors that seeped from blood into the joints. Gout is the most common inflammatory arthritis worldwide; gout and hyperuricemia are on the rise owing mainly to dietary changes, obesity, and metabolic syndrome and increased age. In the past two decades the prevalence of gout has doubled owing mostly to changes in diet.
