An Eye on Gout

Fundus photographs (top) and a fluorescein angiogram (bottom) obtained from a 62-year old male patient with poorly controlled gout, demonstrating highly refractile, crystal-like lesions. As the first evidence of refractive macular lesions in a patient with gout, the case report authors suggest that patients with gout and visual complications should receive careful examination of both the posterior and anterior segment (Y Jiang et al., BMC Ophthalmol, 18, 11 (2018). PMID: 29351793).
