Caption: Pseudogout in kidney transplant patient. Close-up of the swollen knees of a 61-year-old female kidney transplant patient with pseudogout (chondrocalcinosis). Pseudogout is a condition characterised by the abnormal accumulation of calcium pyrophosphate crystals in joint cartilage, which can cause inflammation and reduced articulation. It may lead to the destruction of the joint. Joints affected by pseudogout are red, swollen and extremely tender. Treatments include the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. If these fail a corticosteroid drug may be injected into the affected joints. Low levels of magnesium in the blood (hypomagnesemia) has been associated with the deposition of calcium pyrophosphate crystals in kidney transplant patients.
