Gout, Bunion, or both X-ray details
I combined two x-ray images to create this picture of gout and bunions. After searching for tophi or hallux valgus radiology I found the following gout investigations:
- On the left, Medscape’s “Can’t-Miss Radiographic Changes in Rheumatologic Disease” with a chronic gout sufferer showing signs of bunion.
- On the right, Plastic Surgery Key’s “Salvage of First Ray with Severe Hallux Valgus, Gout, and Osteomyelitis” with a severe bunion sufferer showing signs of gout.
1. Gout Sufferer with Bunion
Medscape describes this as:
Clinically, gout initially affects the first metatarsophalangeal joint of the foot. The tophus may lead to joint space destruction and a hallux valgus deformity (white arrow). The tophi must not be confused for a bunion. Extensive punched-out erosions are also found in the foot (red arrows).
2. Bunion Sufferer with Gout
Plastic Surgery Key describe this as:
Radiograph demonstrating sever hallux valgus with a medial gouty tophi.
