Abstract

Objectives: Familial Mediterranean Fever (FMF) is an autosomal recessive disease characterized by recurrent fever, peritonitis, arthritis, pleuritis, and secondary amyloidosis. In the current study, we sought to determine the frequency of acute surgical abdominal intervention and MEFV gene mutations in FMF patients.
