• Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is frequently accompanied by erysipelas-like attacks. These should alert the physician to the correct diagnosis of this systemic disease. Several other nonspecific skin lesions may be seen in FMF. To our knowledge, histologic findings in erysipelas-like skin rashes seen in FMF are not reported elsewhere in the literature.
