Abstract

Human autoinflammatory diseases (except for the periodic fever, adenopathy, pharyngitis, aphthae syndrom) are a heterogeneous group of genetically determined diseases characterized by seemingly unprovoked inflammation, in the absence of autoimmune or infective causes. Tremendous advances in the understanding of these disorders have been seen in the last decade. This article discusses hereditary autoinflammatory syndromes that are associated with recurrent fevers.
