Abstract: Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is the most common hereditary periodic fever syndrome, which affecting populations of Mediterranean origin (Arabs, Turks, Jews, Lebanese, Greeks, etc.). The frequency of heterozygous carriers of MEFV, responsible for the development of FMF, is more than 1/5 of the total population.
Description: The patient is heterozygote compaund for the mutations M694I and M694V in exon 10 MEFV. FMF was diagnosed in this case, which was occuring with symptoms of chronic pancreatitis. It is known that the severity of clinical signs can be decreased in heterozygous carriers of mutant alleles. However, given the possibility of FMF-associated amyloidosis, rheumatologist clinical supervision and control of serum amyloid were recommended.
