Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Gout. Swollen left hand (right) compared to the normal looking right hand of a 76-year-old man. The swelling is a result of gout. This metabolic disorder causes painful joint inflammation and is a type of arthritis. Attacks typically last a few days. The inflammation is due to the formation and accumulation of uric acid crystals in the joints. Treatment is with anti-inflammatory drugs, or with drugs that limit uric acid formation and increase its excretion.
