Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is the most common autoinflammatory disease
(AID), and it is characterized by spontaneous attack with fever, abdominal pain, and polyserositis.
The discovery of the pathophysiology of the disease reinforces a hypothesis of possible autoinflammatory disease
The new activity index known as the Autoinflammatory Disease
Activity index should be used in the future in prospective studies.
In patients with FMF, serum IL-17 levels were high both during the attack one of the autoinflammatory disease
periods and during asymptomatic periods (32).
Familial mediterranean fever (FMF) is an autosomal recessive autoinflammatory disease
characterized by recurrent fever, serositis, and erysipelas-like erythema.

Mevalonate kinase deficiency (MKD) is a rare autosomal recessive autoinflammatory disease
caused by mutations in MVK, causing loss of function of the enzyme mevalonate kinase (MVK).
All of the involved patients should have at least one known mutation, and parents should not have any history for autoinflammatory disease
Several aspects of BD are typical of an immune-mediated disease, but whether BD is an autoimmune or an autoinflammatory disease
is still debated.
Cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes (CAPS) are a rare, autoinflammatory disease
group that generally has autosomal dominant inheritance.
A DNA test to detect Shar-Pei Autoinflammatory Disease
(SPAID) is now available, thanks to the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine Animal Health Diagnostic Center (AHDC).
