Caption: Coloured X-ray showing chondrocalcinosis, or pseudogout, in the wrists. This disease is characterised by the presence of calcium phosphate crystals in joint cartilage, which cause inflammation, swelling, and reduced articulation. It may lead to the destruction of the joint. Joints affected by pseudogout are red, swollen and extremely tender. This x-ray shows areas of pinching and reduced joint space where the radius articulates at the wrist. Treatments include the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. If these fail a corticosteroid drug may be injected into the affected joints. The underlying cause of pseudogout is unknown.
