The author presented a case of a 67-year old man with acute arthritis
of the right knee. When fluid was extracted from the knee, they
found milky fluid with uric acid crystals. The man had prior trauma
or injury to that knee.
The authors noted that the presence of chylous or milky fluid
in the knee was rare and that the acute arthritis of the man’s
knee could be caused by gout.
