Abstract

The familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is the primarily described and most prevalent autoinflammatory disease known in the world. FMF was so named by Heller, because of its high prevalence in the Mediterranean population. Indeed, it was previously denominated as benign paroxysmal peritonitis by Siegal, a New York allergist of Jewish origin, whereas it has been described as Maladie periodique by French authors.
