Paediatric gout is very rare, but diagnostic tests have demonstrated that chronic persistent hyperuricemia in children can rise to monosodium urate deposits, which can proceed to gout, just as it does in adults.
In most cases though, instances of gout have been due to an underlying disease, so ruling this out is extremely important.
What is Gout?
Gout is a type of arthritis that produces significant joint pain all at once.
The main symptoms to look out for are sudden, acute pain, swelling, redness, and tenderness in one or more joints, most commonly in the big toe.
