Gouty Neuropathy

Arch Neurol. 1983;40(13):823-824. doi:10.1001/archneur.1983.04050120073013

• A patient with gout had a peripheral neuropathy that improved with the lowering of the serum uric acid level. He had a relapse when hyperuricemia recurred, suggesting that the hyperuricemia of gout may produce a treatable form of peripheral neuropathy.
