Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) patients in clinical remission are reported to have increased baseline inflammation. Normal function of the natural anticoagulant pathways is particularly needed in diminishing inflammatory responses. In the presence of subclinical inflammation, natural anticoagulant response may be exaggerated. We aimed to observe the anticoagulant–procoagulant status in attack-free FMF patients. Twenty-seven FMF patients diagnosed in accordance with Tel-Hashomer criteria… CONTINUE READING
