Özet

BACKGROUND: Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF), an autosomal recessive, autoinflammatory disease that is common in Arabs, Jews, Armenians and Turks, is caused by mutations in the MEFV gene, which encodes a protein called pyrin. The disease is characterised by recurrent fever, peritonitis, pleuritis, abdominal pain and arthralgia.
