Abstract

Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is an autosomal recessive disease characterized by recurrent, self-limited attacks of fever usually accompanied by polyserositis. Sjögren's syndrome (SS) is a chronic autoimmune disease characterized by dry eyes, dry mouth and musculoskeletal system involvement. To our knowledge, coexistence of FMF and SS has not been reported before in the literature. We report a patient being followed up with the diagnosis of FMF over 20 years and later developing SS.
