Pseudogout: Pseudogout mimics an inflammatory arthritis similar to that caused by gout. Gout is caused by the deposition of uric acid crystals and tissues and joints. In contrast, pseudogout is caused by the deposition of calcium pyrophosphate crystals in joints and tissues. Both conditions may cause pain, redness, and decreased range of motion of the affected joints such as ankle or toe.
