The aim of the present review is to summarise the results from recent clinical studies on the basis of the newly proposed temporal classification of hyperuricaemia and gout, introducing the now evident condition of hyperuricaemia with monosodium urate deposits. Furthermore, it provides an overview of evidence concerning the link between hyperuricaemia and specific pathological conditions, including cardiovascular disease, renal disease, and hypertension.
