Gout is an inflammatory arthritis characterized by the deposition of monosodium urate crystals in the joints, tendons, and connective tissues. Refractory gout is marked by serum urate levels that do not drop below 6 mg/dL accompanied by recurrent flares and increased tophi. In this program, expert faculty will assess the risk factors and clinical features of uncontrolled or refractory gout, as well as review evidence-based guidelines to assist in the choice of appropriate treatment strategies, including when to initiate or switch urate-lowering therapies. This “In Case You Missed” web activity will also feature clinical experts covering abstracts and key sessions from the American College of Rheumatology Convergence and American Society of Nephrology Kidney Week meetings.
