Abstract

Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is a rare disease in our environment, which is passed down through families by means of an autosomal-recessive manner. Only few patients show pericardial effusion during the episode.We present the case of a 23-year-old woman with pericardial effusion and recurrent attacks of fever, abdominal pain and pericarditis. We arrived at the diagnosis of FMF by performing genetic studies. © 2012 SAC.
