Gout as a source of sesamoid pain.
Isolated gout of a great toe sesamoid has not been described previously. We present a case of gout of the medial sesamoid in a young athlete. Because a diagnosis is often elusive in patients with sesamoid pain, it is possible that other cases of gout of a hallucal sesamoid have gone unrecognized. Consideration of this diagnosis might lead to curative medical therapy precluding the need for surgical intervention.
