Abstract

© 2014, J. Michael Ryan Publishing Inc. All rights reserved. Total knee arthroplasty is a common operation for all types of arthritis, including chronic gouty arthritis. Tophi deposits are a well-known cause of joint destruction, but simultaneous subcutaneous and articular tophaceous gout is exceptional. We report a patient who required bilateral total knee replacement for this rare condition.
