Abstract

 

Calcium pyrophosphate deposition (CPPD) disease, also known as pseudogout, is one of the most common forms of inflammatory arthritis. A variety of comorbidities and metabolic conditions have been recognized to predispose to CPPD. We describe here a patient with chronic CPP arthritis due to hypomagnesemia, which is one of the metabolic etiologies associated with CPPD, especially in younger patients. We also performed a literature search and reviewed all reported cases of CPPD disease associated with hypomagnesemia. All cases of hypomagnesemia and its etiologies leading to CPP arthropathy identified in the literature by this systematic search are summarized in this paper.
