In Certain Physiological Stress Conditions on the Problem of Hyperuricemia
It is well known that diseases, other than gout, may be associated with elavated serum uric acid levels. Myeloproliferative diseases are the main examples of such a condition. Certain drugs, especially diuretics, are also known to produce hyperuricemia and, eventually, an acute attack of gout.
