By Andre de Vries (auth.), Mathias M. Müller, Erich Kaiser, J. Edwin Seegmiller (eds.)

The learn of gouty arthritis has supplied a standard assembly floor for the learn pursuits of either the elemental scientist and the clinician. The curiosity of the chemist in gout begun 1776 with the isolation of uric acid from a concretion of the urinary tract by means of the Swedish chemist SCHEELE. an analogous substance was once consequently extracted from a gouty tophus through the British chemist WOLLASTONE in 1797 and a part century later the reason for the deposits of sodium urate in such tophi used to be traced to a hyperuricemia within the serum of gouty sufferers through the British general practitioner Alfred Baring GARROD who had additionally obtained education within the chemical laboratory and was once for that reason a fore-runner of lots of brand new clinician-investigators. the new surge of growth in figuring out of a few of the factors of gout by way of particular enzyme defects marks the doorway of the biochemist into this box of research. The identity of the 1st basic disorder of purine metabolism linked to over-production of uric acid, a critical or partial deficiency of the enzyme hypoxanthine-guanine phospho­ ribosyltransferase was once completed under a decade in the past. the data of the mechanism of purine over-production that it generated led presently to the identity of households sporting a dominantly (possibly X-linked) inherited elevate within the task of the enzyme phosphoribosylpyrophosphate synthetase as a reason behind purine over-production. but this can be just a begin as those different types of enzyme defects account for only 5 in line with cent of gouty patients.

By Charles C. Hughes (auth.), Ronald C. Simons, Charles C. Hughes (eds.)

In the previous few years there was a superb revival of curiosity in culture-bound psychiatric syndromes. A spate of recent papers has been released on renowned and not more established syndromes, and there were a couple of makes an attempt to place a few order into the sector of inquiry. In a overview of the literature on culture-bound syndromes as much as 1969 Yap made yes feedback for organizing brooding about them which for the main half haven't got common attractiveness (see Carr, this quantity, p. 199). during the seventies new descriptive and conceptual paintings was once scarce, yet within the previous few years books and papers discussing the sector have been authored or edited via Tseng and McDermott (1981), AI-Issa (1982), Friedman and Faguet (1982) and Murphy (1982). In 1983 Favazza summarized his knowing of the nation of present considering for the fourth version of the excellent Textbook of Psychiatry, and a symposium on culture-bound syndromes used to be equipped by means of Kenny for the 8th overseas Congress of Anthropology and Ethnology. The robust­ est effect to emerge from all this contemporary paintings is that there's no great consensus, and that the very notion, "culture-bound syndrome" may good use a few severe reconsideration. because the position of culture-specific ideals and prac­ tices in all ailment has end up more and more well-known it has develop into much less and no more transparent what units the culture-bound syndromes apart.
