Gout is a disease that results from a derangement in uric acid metabolism, causing elevation of serum uric acid levels and deposition of urate crystals in joints and other tissues. Uric acid is the end product of purine metabolism in humans. At physiological pH, uric acid is 98% ionized and is present mainly as urate ion. In extracellular fluids, uric acid exists as a solution of monosodium urate, which has very low solubility and can precipitate very easily.
