Myelogenous leukemia and gout, two distinct diseases of unknown etiology, have in common a disorder of uric acid metabolism which is manifested clinically by an elevation of the blood uric acid. The simultaneous occurrence of these two otherwise unrelated diseases is of interest and is illustrated by the following case report.
A 72 year old Negro male was admitted to the Medical College of Virginia Hospital in March, 1952. He gave a two-week history of chest pain, cough, fever, chills, dyspnea and hemoptysis. On examination the temperature was 100.8° F.; pulse, 88; respiration, 20; blood pressure, 160/80 mm.
