Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is an autoinflammatory disorder characterized by recurrent febrile polyserositis and arthritis attacks. Accompanying seronegative spondyloarthropathy has been reported in FMF in addition to its own joint involvement. However, the coexistence of FMF with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is very rare, only three cases with severe joint involvement and mortal outcome have been reported in the literature. Here, we present another case with FMF and JIA with osteoporosis, successfully treated with etanercept with a four-year follow-up.
