The pathogenesis of chronic urate nephropathy involves the persistent deposition of sodium urate crystals in the interstitial tissue of the renal medulla; these crystals might activate the local renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system; damage endothelial cells; and cause high glomerular pressure, chronic inflammatory reactions, interstitial fibrosis, and other pathological changes.[77] If HUA patients develop renal tubular dysfunction, such as increased nocturia, low specific gravity urine, and low-molecular-weight proteinuria, chronic urate nephropathy is suspected.
