A 55 year-old man comes to the emergency department because of a three-day history of pain, erythema, and swelling in the first metatarsophalangeal joint of his right foot. He is unable to sleep at night because he has severe pain whenever his bed sheet touches the joint. He admits to smoking one pack per day and drinking three to four beers nightly. He denies any previous episodes of pain in this joint and denies trauma to the area. He denies pain in any other joint.
