This is a report of a 41-year-old male with triggering of the long finger flexor digitorum superficialis tendon at the wrist secondary to tophaceous gout. The tophus was severely infiltrating the tendon, and a tenotomy of the FDS tendon was performed. Preoperatively, the lesion could not be distinguished from a neoplasm.

Article: Structural Joint Damage in Gout[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: This article summarizes the structural damage that is observed in advanced gout and current understanding of the mechanisms by which this damage occurs. Interactions between monosodium urate crystals and cells within the joint are described as well as knowledge gained from imaging studies. Future research directions and potential therapeutic strategies for the prevention and treatment of joint damage in gout are also discussed.

ABSTRACT: We report 2 cases of audible intrinsic wrist snapping without a palpable click resulting from dorsal radiotriquetral ligament adhesions. After its debridement, both patients demonstrated complete resolution of symptoms.
