OBJECTIVE To investigate the prevalence of MEFV gene mutations in Turkish patients with Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP) but with no symptoms of familial Mediterranean fever (FMF). In addition, we assessed the clinical and laboratory characteristics of HSP patients with and without MEFV mutations. METHODS Eighty pediatric patients with HSP (44 boys and 36 girls) were enrolled. Blood for mutation analysis was obtained either at the time of the diagnosis of HSP or during followup visits in… CONTINUE READING
