The paper presents a patient who was first diagnosed with hypertension just a few days before developing gout. Hypertension occurred along with the hyperuricemia last year after curing the patient of gout. Hyperuricemia was initially symptomatic and manifested as gout; later it was without its specific symptoms but was always associated with hypertension. Just a month after correction of the patient’s previous diet, the levels of uric acid and blood pressure were normal or at pre-hypertensive values. Our case supports the concept of the predictive role of uric acid in the genesis of essential hypertension and emphasizes the application of an adequate diet in the therapy of some forms of hypertension.
