Here’s something that doctors don’t see every day – a case of gout so bad that it appears nearly medieval!

An American Internist posted an alarming patient case this week with these photos of an extremely advanced case of gout.

“Saw a new patient today… and this is what his joints look like.  I’ve never seen gout this bad outside of a textbook. He’s amazingly functional.”

Have you ever seen anything like this??
