Pseudo-gout is Associated with these Conditions

-Hyperparathyroidism
-Hemochromatosis
-Hypomagnesemia
-Hypophosphatemia

They all promote Calcium Pyrophosphate Dihydrate Crystal Deposition(CPPD).

These metabolic associations has to be sought specially in younger patients in whom pseudogout is a distant possibility.
