Özet

Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF), affecting people of Mediterranean origin, is an endemic and sometimes problematic disease because of colchicine resistance/intolerance, with relative lack of treatment alternatives, and disease-or treatment-related issues, such as subfertility. Anakinra, being a rational and effective treatment alternative, has no conclusive human pregnancy data. Here we report a case of FMF with infertility who became pregnant with in vitro fertilization (IVF) under treatment with anakinra, along with the pregnancy outcome.
