Hyperimmunoglobulin D syndrome (HIDS) is one of the autoinflammatory syndromes which are characterized by febrile attacks. Duration and frequency of the febrile attacks, as well as typical organ involvements vary greatly. Recently, it is possible to reach more reliable data by the possibilities that are opened up by molecular genetics in order to highlight the aetiopathogenesis of this group of diseases. Typical patients with HIDS have an onset of disease in the first year of life. Here, we report four Turkish HIDS cases; three of whom, the symptoms started at a later age. The diagnoses were made by relevant clinical symptoms along with MVK mutations detected by DNA sequencing method. As summarised in this article, HIDS could be presented with a broad spectrum of symptoms. Although most of the HIDS patients are reported from Europe and especially Dutch ancestry, case reports are presented from all over the world. For this reason, HIDS should be kept in mind for the differential diagnosis of periodic fever syndromes or before accepting an FMF patient as colchichine resistant. We suppose that the phenomenon of "later-onset HIDS" should shed light into unresolved clinical problems of patients with periodic fever. Especially in countries that FMF is more frequent such as Turkey, even though the symptoms start later than classic cases, HIDS should be kept in mind for differential diagnosis of periodic fever syndromes.
