In the recent years, the identification of genes involved in the modulation of inflammatory and apoptotic processes and the improved understanding of mechanisms linked to the aberrant activation of the inflammasome, a multi protein intracytoplasmatic scaffold complex synthesizing the biologically active interleukin-(IL-1), the prototypic master cytokine affecting nearly all cell types, have allowed the delineation of a new group of diseases called "monogenic autoinflammatory syndromes (MAISs)" [1].
