Although hyperuricemia is not a disease, if uric acid levels remain high, over time they can lead to several diseases. Hyperuricemia is the central risk factor for gout and is a key component of the metabolic syndrome. The case illustrated here is of hyperuricemia with only symptom of pain in the joints, large as well as small, mainly the shoulder joints, knee joints, ankle joints and interphalangeal joints for 2 years without any associated complaint.
