Familial Mediterranean Fever (FMF) is the most common Periodic Fever syndrome characterized by attacks like serositis and fever. FMF is an autosomal recessive disease caused by MEFV gene mutations which located on 16p13.3. Spondyloarthropathy (SpA) is a chronic rheumatic disease characterized by inflammation in axial and peripheral joints with enthesitis and extraartricular involvements. One of the major criteria of SpA is sacroiliitis that can be described rarely in FMF patients. M694V mutation has been frequently seen mutation in FMF patients; also it has been associated with SpA.
