ABSTRACT: As metabolism is controlled by the input of genes and the environment, metabolic disorders result from some disturbance in the interaction between genes and environmental factors. Many metabolic disorders consist in congenital enzyme deficiencies, also known as "inborn errors of metabolism," that may be disabling or cause severe illness and death and are predominantly inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion. The deposit in cells and tissues of storage substances from errors in metabolic processes may produce a wide variety of disorders affecting different organs and functions, with different degrees of severity, and often present around the time of birth or early childhood. Distinctive ocular and skin manifestations accompany many metabolic diseases and may provide clues for their diagnosis and evolution.

ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVES: To investigate the prevalence of the ultrasound findings indicative of monosodium urate crystal deposits at the hip joint in patients with gout and to explore the association between the ultrasound findings and the clinical and serological features. METHODS: Bilateral ultrasound assessment of the hip joint was carried out in 40 consecutive patients with gout, diagnosed according to the latest Gout American College of Rheumatology/European League Against Rheumatism classification criteria, and 25 disease controls. Ultrasound evidence of crystal deposits was obtained using the Outcome Measures in Rheumatology definitions: hip intra-articular aggregates and/or tophi, and "double contour" sign over the hyaline cartilage of the femoral head. RESULTS: The ultrasound examination revealed crystal deposits in at least one hip in 17 out of 40 patients (42.5%) with gout, and in 2 out of 25 disease controls (8.0%) (P = 0.0029). Aggregates, tophi, and "double contour" sign were found in at least one hip in 13 (32.5%), 6 (15.0%) and 6 (15.0%) out of 40 patients with gout, respectively. A moderate association between disease duration (P = 0.004, Rpb = 0.442), number of gouty "attacks" in the previous year (P = 0.029, Rpb = 0.346), presence of subcutaneous tophi (P = 0.037, V = 0.330) and ultrasound crystal deposits was found. CONCLUSION: Our results indicate that detecting monosodium urate crystals by ultrasound is common at hip joint in patients with gout.

ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to evaluate the reliability of the outcome measures in rheumatology (OMERACT) definitions for ultrasound (US) elementary lesions in gout through an image reading exercise. Images from patients with gout (static images and videos) were collected. As an initial step, we carried out a image reading exercise within the experts of the Pan-American League of Associations for Rheumatology (PANLAR) US Study Group (n = 16). The following step consisted in a web-based exercise with the participation of larger number of sonographers (n = 63) from different centers. Images were rated evaluating the presence/absence of any US elementary lesion. Inter- and intra-reader reliabilities were analyzed using kappa coefficients. Participants were stratified according to their level of experience. In the first exercise, inter-reader kappa values were 0.45 for aggregates, 0.57 for tophus, 0.69 for erosions, and 0.90 for double contour (DC). Intra-reader kappa values were 0.86, 0.76, 0.80, and 0.90, respectively. The web-based exercise showed inter-reader kappa values for aggregates, tophus, erosions, and DC of 0.42, 0.49, 0.69, and 0.79, respectively. The intra-reader kappa values were 0.62, 0.69, 0.77, and 0.85, respectively. Reliability was not influenced by the sonographer's level of experience. The reliability of the new OMERACT US definitions for elementary lesions in gout ranged from moderate to excellent, depending on the type of lesion.

ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVES: To determine the prevalence of the ultrasound findings indicating monosodium urate crystal deposits at the popliteal groove region in patients with gout; to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of ultrasound in detecting monosodium urate crystal deposits at the popliteal groove region, patellar tendon and the knee hyaline cartilage; to investigate the correlation between the ultrasound findings at the popliteal groove region and the clinical features. METHODS: Bilateral ultrasound assessment of the popliteal groove region, patellar tendon and femoral condyles' hyaline cartilage was performed on 47 consecutive patients with gout and 37 controls. The ultrasound findings indicating monosodium urate crystals (aggregates, tophi and "double-contour" sign) were identified according to the Outcome Measures in Rheumatology definitions. RESULTS: One or more ultrasound abnormalities (aggregates and/or tophi) were found in at least one popliteal groove region in 23 out of 47 patients with gout (48.9%) and in 4 out of 37 controls (10.8%) (P < 0.001). Sensitivity, specificity and diagnostic odds ratio of the ultrasound findings at the popliteal groove region, patellar tendon and at the femoral condyles' hyaline cartilage were 0.49/0.89/7.9, 0.62/0.81/6.9 and 0.30/1.0/32.0, respectively. There was a significant correlation between the ultrasound findings at the popliteal groove region and history of knee inflammatory involvement (P < 0.001, V = 0.644) and number of gouty "attacks" in the previous year (P = 0.012, V = 0.434). CONCLUSIONS: This study provides new insights into the ultrasound assessment of patients with gout, highlighting the clinical relevance of the popliteal groove region as an area of collection of otherwise undetectable monosodium urate crystals.

ABSTRACT: The objective of the present study is to evaluate, by ultrasonography (US), the prevalence in the quadriceps, patellar, and Achilles tendon involvement of gout compared to that of patients with osteoarthritis and asymptomatic marathon runners. This is a multicenter, multinational, transverse cross-sectional, and comparative study comprising 80 patients with the diagnosis of gout according to the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) criteria, compared with two control groups: 35 patients with generalized osteoarthritis according to the ACR criteria and 35 subjects who were healthy marathon runners. Demographics and clinical characteristics, such as age, gender, comorbidity, disease duration, pain at the enthesis in the knee and ankle, frequency of disease exacerbations, uric acid level more than 7.2 mg at the time of evaluation, and type of treatment, were recorded. All participants were examined by ultrasound at the quadriceps, the patellar at its proximal and distal insertion, and the Achilles tendon to detect intra-tendinous tophus or aggregates according to the OMERACT definitions. Descriptive statistics and differences between groups were analyzed by chi-square test. Sensitivity and specificity by US were calculated. The prevalence of intra-tendinous aggregates and tophi in gout was significant compared with the other groups. Both lesions were the most frequent at the distal patellar insertion, followed by the quadriceps, Achilles, and proximal patellar insertion ones. In patients with osteoarthritis (OA), intra-tendinous hyperechoic aggregates were observed in 20 % of quadriceps tendons and in 11 % of patellar tendons at its proximal insertion, while in the healthy marathon runner group, the Achilles tendon had this kind of lesion in 17 % of the subjects. Neither the OA nor the healthy marathon runners had intra-tendinous tophi. The sensitivity and specificity of US to detect tophi or aggregates were 69.6 and 92 %, respectively, tendon involvement at the lower limbs in gout is very frequent, particularly in the patellar tendon, and US possesses good sensitivity and specificity for detecting intra-tendinous tophi.

Fara, Nauan / Vázquez Mellado, Janitzia / Sequeira, Gabriel / Kerzberg, Eduardo. ·Servicio de Reumatología, Hospital J.M. Ramos Mejía, Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires, Argentina. ·Reumatol Clin · Pubmed #22854175.

ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the current management of gout in general practitioners and specialists in Buenos Aires city. MATERIAL AND METHODS: multiple choice, anonimous, survey, performed to 33 rheumatologists (REU), 52 Internal Medicine specialists (EMI) and 86 general practitioners (Otros). RESULTS: Gout is a very common or usual disease for 51.5% of REU vs 11.5% EMI and 8.1% Otros. At diagnosis, uric acid crystals are identified by 51.5% REU vs 28.8% EMI and 26.7% Otros and tophi observed by 60.6% REU vs 30.8% EMI and 30.2% Otros. REU and EMI should indicate colchicine for acute gout in 75.8% and 80.8% respectively vs 7.7% of Otros. REU measure patient's height/weight and waist circumference less frequently than EMI (66.7% vs 92.3% and 45.5% vs 75% respectively). CONCLUSIONS: REU usually examine patients with gout but in a chronic stage. The identification of crystals in synovial fluid is low. The use ofcolchicine is still high. REU should improve the evaluation of the metabolic syndrome.
