A young man with oligoarthritis: what is his cardiovascular risk?

A young man with oligoarthritis: what is his cardiovascular risk?
A young man with oligoarthritis: what is his cardiovascular risk?
Gout is the commonest cause of inflammatory arthritis among young men. A case of acute gout in a 39-year-old man is described. As part of his assessment, his cardiovascular risk factors were evaluated. He was found to have elevated body mass index, central obesity, hypertension, a family history of cardiovascular disease, and hypercholesterolemia. This case highlights the association between gout, hyperuricaemia and elevated cardiovascular risk. In young male patients, acute presentation with gout in primary care may provide the first opportunity for assessment of cardiovascular risk factors and primary prevention of ischaemic heart disease.

Abstract

Gout is the commonest cause of inflammatory arthritis among young men. A case of acute gout in a 39-year-old man is described. As part of his assessment, his cardiovascular risk factors were evaluated. He was found to have elevated body mass index, central obesity, hypertension, a family history of cardiovascular disease, and hypercholesterolemia. This case highlights the association between gout, hyperuricaemia and elevated cardiovascular risk. In young male patients, acute presentation with gout in primary care may provide the first opportunity for assessment of cardiovascular risk factors and primary prevention of ischaemic heart disease.
