Familial Mediterranean Fever: A Case Report

Am J Dis Child. 1978;132(12):1209-1210. doi:10.1001/archpedi.1978.02120370061014

• A case of familial Mediterranean fever in a young girl presented typical diagnostic dilemmas. Although intermittent proteinuria was noted, a rectal biopsy specimen failed to demonstrate the presence of amyloidosis. Treatment consisted of supportive therapy and colchicine, to which she responded. In a cosmopolitan population, familial Mediterranean fever should be considered in the differential diagnosis of fever of unknown origin.
