Mediterranean Fever Gene Mutations in Greek Patients with Behcet’s Disease

Pyrin gene mutations in Greek patients with Behçet’s disease are not more common than the general population.



Objective: It is known that clinical similarities between Behcet’s disease and Familial Mediterranean Fever have led to the hypothesis of a common pathogenesis. Familial Mediterranean Fever is caused by MEFV gene mutations coding for pyrin. Therefore, we examined whether these pyrin mutations are also associated with Behcet’s disease.
