Patients with multiple episodes of severe gout attacks every year or with tophi on examination need to be put on uric acid lowering therapy. Using uric acid lowering agents helps reduce the frequency of gout attacks, and reduces tophi formation with reduced risk of joint destruction.
The effective management of gout involves a set of general principles regardless of the anti-inflammatory agent that is used. This includes early treatment, duration of therapy, gout flare prophylaxis, continuing urate-lowering therapy during attacks, tophaceous gout, comorbidities, and adjunctive measures.
Several different therapies, which include systemic and intraarticular glucocorticoids, colchicine, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are effective for the treatment of severe gout; however, there is no single best agent that works for all patients experiencing a severe flare of gout.
