Gout occurs approximately 20 times more often in men than in women.

Gout most commonly affects joints in the following areas: feet, ankles, hands, wrists, elbows, and knees. Less commonly affected areas include the sacroiliac, sternoclavicular, and shoulder joints.

Also, gout rarely affects the hip and spine. One systemic area of involvement in gout involves the kidneys, as a result of crystal deposition with resulting sequelae.

When gout affects the hip, other joints are also involved. It is rare for gout to present as an isolated problem with no history of prior attacks affecting other joints.

There have also been reports of gout affecting total hip prostheses.
