Ulcerative colitis (UC) is an inflammatory disease of the colonic mucosa. The presence of gene responsible for FMF, MEFV, which frequently causes inflammation, may aggravate the clinical course of UC. We aimed to determine the prevalence of MEFV mutations in UC patients and its impact on the clinical course. Four groups were formed as group 1 UC with distal disease, group 2 UC with pancolonic disease, group 3 UC with total colectomy, and group 4 Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) patients. Eleven… CONTINUE READING
