Familial Mediterranean Fever - A congenital disorder of exaggerated response to endogenous interferon?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Familial Mediterranean Fever (FMF) is an inherited disease whose pathogenesis is obscure. We raise the possibility that the short episodes of fever, joint pains and the abdominal manifestations of this entity may be related to a genetic defect in the interferon system of these patients.
