AB  - RATIONALE: Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is the most common form of
      autoinflammatory disease. We report a rare case of FMF with gastrointestinal
      lesions mimicking Crohn disease. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 21-year-old Japanese man was
      referred to our institution, complaining of refractory diarrhea and weight loss
      of 14 kg during the past two years. He had presented with recurrent fever,
      abdominal pain, anal fistula and stomatitis. His father and one of his brothers
      had ulcerative colitis. Colonoscopy revealed longitudinal ulcers in the terminal 
      ileum and aphthous erosions in the colorectum. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy
      revealed multiple linear erosions in the gastric corpus and circular erosions in 
      the duodenal second portion. Biopsy from these lesions failed to detect
      epithelioid cell granulomas. DIAGNOSES: Analysis of the genomic DNA revealed
      compound heterozygous mutations of E148Q/L110P in exon 2 of MEFV gene, suggesting
      a diagnosis of FMF. INTERVENTIONS: The patient was subsequently given 0.5 mg of
      colchicine per day. OUTCOMES: Follow-up colonoscopy 6 months later demonstrated
      that both the longitudinal ulcers in the terminal ileum and aphthous lesions in
      the colorectum had completely disappeared. LESSONS: Our case suggests that
      patients with FMF possibly manifest gastrointestinal lesions mimicking Crohn
      disease.
