Among the factors which may influence on the uric acid metabolism, the excess or deficiency of some hormones apparently induces the abnormal serum uric acid level. We described hyperuricemia and hypouricemia associated with endocrine disorders. Hyperuricemia due to the increased production of uric acid is observed in myopathy associated with hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism or hypoparathyroidism. Hyperuricemia due to the decreased renal uric acid clearance is associated with hypopituritarism, hypothyroidism, hyperparathyroidism, central diabetes insipidus, nephrogenic diabetes insipidus, Bartter syndrome, and diabetic ketoacidosis. Hypouricemia due to the increased renal uric acid clearance is associated with hypoparathyroidism, primary aldosteronism and inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone (SIADH).
