Abstract

Background: Among the diseases that clinicians deal with, few do have a documented medical history that can be traced back to several centuries ago. A careful study of Rhazes’ Treatments on Gout reveals a lot about the nature and therapy of gout.

 

Methods: We managed to study the perceptions about pathogenesis, symptomatology, diagnosis, and treatment of gout that have changed over time. We also discussed some of the past and present fallacies regarding this disease.

 

Results: Rhazes provided a detailed description on the vital role of genetics and the relationship between the development of gout, an indulgent way of living, and tophi at a period of time between 1st and 6th centuries AD.

 

Conclusion: This study showed that the findings of Rhazes about treatments of gout were consonant with modern medical theories.
