Ophthalmological evaluation of 50 patients with familial paroxysmal polyserositis (familial Mediterranean fever) failed to reveal any characteristic abnormalities.

The discrepancy between these findings and those previously reported may be due to the ethnic differences that exist in the groups studied.
