SOLIS CARTAS, Urbano; BEJARANO, Silvia Calvopina; VALDES GONZALEZ, Jorge Luis  y  AGUIRRE SAIMEDA, Gladys Lorena. Avascular necrosis of the femoral head in a patient with gout. Rev Cuba Reumatol [online]. 2018, vol.20, n.2, e14. ISSN 1817-5996.

Gout is an inflammatory disease that is caused by disorders in the metabolism of uric acid. It mainly affects male patients with a predominance of over 50 years of age. The clinical picture is characterized by the presence of a monoarticular inflammatory syndrome with a predilection for the lower limbs; Its main complications are due to kidney involvement of various kinds. The avascular necrosis of one or both femoral heads is an infrequent complication that can be due to multiple causes, among which there are significant antecedents of traumas, the presence of rheumatic diseases or other conditions that imply compromise of the small circulation. On this occasion, the case of a 57-year-old male patient with a 6-year history of gout who underwent a diagnosis of avascular necrosis of the left femoral head was presented.
