Gout: Is a collection of uric acid crystals in a joint, usually a smaller joint, and typically (but not always) the big toe joint. Pseudogout is caused by calcium oxalate crystals. The sudden onset of pain, redness and swelling is the same, but pseudogout tends to involve larger joints like the knees and elbows.
