Book Description :

Seminar paper from the year 2018 in the subject Medicine - Epidemiology, grade: 1, Egerton University, language: English, abstract: Gout and pseudogout are believed to the most prevalent crystal-induced arthropathies in humans. These disorders occur due to the deposition of crystals in the joints and soft tissues. This results into periarticular and articular inflammation and injury. Some of the most common crystals that are responsible for arthropathies such as gout and pseudogout include hydroxyapatite, monosodium urate (MSU), calcium oxalate and calcium pyrophosphate dehydrate (CPPD) (Rothschild, 2014). In practice, gout and pseudogout are relatively different despite the fact that they are crystal-induced arthropathies, and their difference can be explained by their definitions. Gout is defined as a crystal deposition disease that is characterized by the precipitation and super-saturation of monosodium urate (MSU) in tissues. This deposition of monosodium urate crystals causes inflammation of the joints and soft tissues, and this is attributable to tissue damage. Therefore, gout is characterized by sub-acute or acute attacks of joints or the inflammation of soft tissues resulting from the deposition of monosodium urate. The clinical course of gout involves an underlying metabolic aberrancy referred to as hyperuricemia which is defined as the serum urate level of more than 6.8 mg/dL (Al-Ashkar, 2010). On the other hand, pseudogout is defined as a clinical syndrome that resembles gout, and it is caused by the deposition of calcium pyrophosphate dehydrate crystals in soft tissues and joints, resulting into the inflammation and cartilage tissue damage. Therefore, the term pseudogout emanates from the nature of its clinical presentation in which acute attacks of the joints resembles those observed in gout (Al-Ashkar, 2010). However, it is worth noting that, in pseudogout, chondrocalcinosis is the most distinctive feature for the syndrome although some patients with chondrocalcinosis do not present with pseudogout. This seminar paper focuses on gout and pseudogout.

Book Description :

One person in four in the industrialized countries suffers from hyperuricemia and is therefore at risk of developing gouty arthritis, nephrolithiasis, or any of the other consequences of urate deposition. At present, far too little is known about urate deposition and the mechanisms by which it occurs, as well as about its clinical consequences, which include formation of toph; over the helix of the ear or in bones close to joints that have never exhibited an attack, development of bursitis, chronic tendovaginitis leading to carpal tunnel syndrome, and gouty paraplegia. Information on these matters is needed to estimate the risks of hyperuricemia and to determine when therapeutic intervention is indicated. The contributions and discussions in this book, resulting from an international symposium held in December 1990 in the Medizinische Poliklinik in Munich, provide an up-to-date source of current knowledge about hyperuricemia in man and its clinical consequences.

Book Description :

Palaeopathology is an evidence-based guide to the principal types of pathological lesions often found in human remains and how to diagnose them. Tony Waldron presents an innovative method of arriving at a diagnosis in the skeleton by applying what he refers to as 'operational definitions'. The method ensures that those who study bones will use the same criteria for diagnosing disease, thereby enabling valid comparisons to be made between studies. Waldron's book is based on modern clinical knowledge and provides background information on the natural history of bone disease. In addition, the volume demonstrates how results from studies should be analysed, methods of determining the frequency of disease, and other types of epidemiological analysis. This edition includes new chapters on the development of palaeopathology, basic concepts, health and disease, diagnosis, and spinal pathology. Chapters on analysis and interpretation have been thoroughly revised and enlarged.
