Abstract

Gout affecting the acromioclavicular joint is extremely rare. We describe a case of acute gout involving the acromioclavicular joint in a patient with seronegative spondyloarthropathy, following use of the fibric acid derivative, gemfibrozil. This case broadens the differential diagnosis of acute acromioclavicular joint arthritis; further studies are needed to determine if there is a causal relationship between use of gemfibrozil and an acute attack of gout.
