In this unusual case of a painful stump, due to gout, the etiology was finally established by the following findings:

1. The blood uric acid was 7.2 milligrams per 100 cubic centimeters (twice the upper limit of normal);

2. Section from the stump revealed uric-acid crystals in giant cells;

3. Systemic treatment caused relief of symptoms.
