The impact of familial Mediterranean fever on women's health.
Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is the most common hereditary recurrent febrile disorder, characterized by the sudden onset of high fever and severe abdominal pain. The implications of this disorder on a woman's health are significant and not well known among obstetrician/gynecologists. The goal of this review is to familiarize providers caring for women on the ramifications of FMF on different aspects of a woman's life, including puberty, fertility, pregnancy, and menopause, as well as to help them to diagnose and manage FMF when these patients become pregnant.
