A 52 yrs old male presented with multiple, painless, firm nodules over extremities, which were mimicking benign neoplastic lesion. Fine needle aspiration was performed from three such nodules which revealed chalky white aspirate. After staining the smears with H&E and Giemsa stains, smears show amorphous pink material, needle shaped crystalline structures, many macrophages and foreign body type giant cells. A diagnosis of gouty tophi was offered which was confirmed by histopathology and serum uric acid level.
