Periodic fever syndrome
The periodic fever syndromes (also known as autoinflammatory syndromes) are a set of genetic disorders in which the mechanisms which initiate and control inflammation are disturbed leading to uncontrolled inflammation throughout the body. The syndromes are diverse, but tend to cause fever, joint pains, abdominal pains and may lead to chronic complications such as amyloidosis.
