Özet

Background and objectives. Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is an autosomal-recessive auto-inflammatory disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of fever with serositis. Sacroiliitis associated with FMF is very rare, especially in children. We aimed to describe the demographic, clinical, laboratory features, and treatment responses of pediatric patients with FMF-related sacroiliitis.
