Hyperuricemia, Gout and Idiopathic Aseptic Necrosis of Bone
Since the original report (1) of the occurrence of aseptic necrosis of the femoral head in a patient with gout, a number of Authors have reported increased incidence of gout and/or hyperuricemia in this disease (2, 3). In particular, the finding of definite clinical gout and the demonstration of urate crystals in the synovium of the hip joint in this disease suggest more than an aceidental relationship (2).
