Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Chronic gout and rheumatoid arthritis are common medical manifestations with debilitating effects on patients. However, these conditions are not typically identified concomitantly and can be hard to distinguish from one another. We report a rare case of a 50-year-old white woman with a history of chronic gout and rheumatoid arthritis who presented with intradermal tophaceous gout. Physical examination and laboratory results are described.
