Chronic deformities, including ulnar drift and palmar subluxation, along with the presence of subcutaneous nodules, can mimic RA (42–45). DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS In patients with a compatible clinical history, the differential diagnosis of acute gout includes arthritis due to infection (including gonococcal and nongonococcal arthritis), alternative crystalline athridites (most commonly pseudogout [calcium pyrophosphate dehydrate, CPPD], less commonly calcium hydroxyapatite deposition), and other rheumatic conditions that cause an inflammatory arthritis (RA, reactive arthritis [ReA], lupus, and so on).

OA is associated with trauma, but little can be predicted with respect to the degree of trauma needed and the time frame when symptoms will occur. There is a genetic predisposition, though the penetrance is incomplete. One group that does seem to be unique is erosive OA, or inflammatory OA subset.

With time this inflammation subsides and the patient is left with a deformed, and rarely, an ankylosed joint.
