Despite progress in understanding of the genetic basis of gout, the precise factors affecting differences in gout susceptibility among different gout subtypes remain unclear. Using clinically diagnosed gout patients, we conducted a genome-wide meta-analysis of two distinct gout subtypes: the renal overload type and the renal underexcretion type. We provide genetic evidence at a genome-wide level of significance that supports a positive association between ABCG2 dysfunction and acquisition of the renal overload type.
