Abstract

Objective-Phenotype II in familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is the onset of amyloidosis before the onset of FMF with its typical attacks, or as an isolated finding in a member of an FMF family. Its presence was investigated by looking for proteinuria among the asymptomatic relatives of patients with FMF complicated by amyloidosis and among the asymptomatic relatives of patients with juvenile chronic arthritis (JCA) complicated by amyloidosis, used as controls.
