Four patients of pure gouty nephropathy are presented. Gout was of over five years duration and asymptomatic nephropathy manifested as non-oliguric acute renal failure. Diseases commonly associated with it like uric acid stones, urinary tract infections, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemid, obesity and nephrosclerosis were absent. Reduction in serum uric acid level resulted in prompt improvement in renal functions. Early detection and control of hyperuricemia may help in restoration of renal functions.
