Pseudogout is very much like gout in appearance and symptoms. It is also a form of arthritis. Pseudogout is caused by deposition of calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate crystals (CPPD) instead of the uric acid crystals. As like gout, the nonsteriodal anti-inflammatory medications and Colchicine are utilized to manage an acute episode. The long term management of this condition is directed at treating the symptoms for each attack.
