Gouty Tophus On Elbow

Gouty Tophi On Elbow is the third of four photographs from the Widespread Painless Tophi Report.

The report highlights the dangers of simply focusing on pain relief for gout management. Tophi do not usually hurt. You might not ever suspect that you have gout. This form of painless gout means your elbow might be being destroyed slowly by gouty tophi. If left too long, your elbow will start to crumble causing osteoarthritis.

Don’t risk it – get uric acid controlled to safe levels.

Tophy? Perhaps they couldn’t decide if it was a single gouty tophus, or a bunch of gouty tophi. It doesn’t matter what you call it. You will be calling it agony if you do not act now.
