Abstract

Background: Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is an autoinflammatory disease characterized by recurrent serosal inflammation with fever, which can result in amyloid deposition. Anti-interleukin-1 drugs emerge as a therapeutic option for colchicine-resistant patients. In this study, we aimed to document our experience with canakinumab use in kidney transplant recipients who developed AA amyloidosis due to FMF.
