Pages: 
281–6
Synopsis: 
Familial Mediterranean fever is a frequently seen chronic inflammatory disease that can lead to severe morbidity and mortality if left untreated. Severity and frequency of attacks are correlated with mutations. However, environmental factors play an important role as the clinical course can differ even in people with mutations.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Clinical and genetic findings of familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) may vary in different populations. Environmental factors may also affect phenotypic features of FMF. In this study, we investigated demographic, clinical and mutational features of FMF patients treated in a single reference hospital in Turkey.
