Patients with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) are characteristically hypouricemic. Therefore, the occurrence of gouty arthritis in association with AIDS would be expected to be a rare phenomenon. We describe a patient with AIDS in whom gouty arthritis developed. Features of both diseases in relation to their coexistence in this patient are discussed.
