Le Coude - Démo

Crystal synovitis


Gout (uric acid crystals) and pseudogout (calcium pyrophosphate crystals) seldom affect the elbow joint during a first attack.
The onset is sudden and unprovoked, developing in the course of a few hours.

The clinical examination shows a gross capsular pattern in combination with a spastic endfeel.
The shiny red appearance of the joint and its extreme tenderness are characteristic.
