Chronic Tophaceous Gout-MRI

Evidence of degenerative  changes in the tibiotalar and subtalar joints with subchondral erosions and signal alteration.  There is evidence of increase in the fluid in the ankle joint with mixed signal contents along with intermediate signal intensity soft tissue masses surrounding the ankle mortice. These soft tissue masses with signal characteristics as described are suspicious for chronic tophaceous gout.

This is a great case! Is it biopsy or surgically proven? Thanks for sharing.
