Primary FNAC diagnosis of chronic hyperuricemia presenting as multiple tophi in a young male patient is discussed. The combination of chalky white aspirate, presence of needle shaped crystals under light microscopy, and the high degree of birefringence under polarised light helped in diagnosis. Certain rare manifestations of this disease are also presented.
