Objective To evaluate the course of coronavirus-19 (COVID-19) infection in paediatric familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) patients and to investigate the risk factors for COVID-19 infection. Methods Medical records of 100 consecutive paediatric FMF patients and their COVID-19 infection status were evaluated. Age- and gender-matched control group consisted of 51 patients with positive results for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. Results Twenty-five of 100 paediatric FMF patients were detected to have COVID-19 infection. A history of contact with a COVID-19 case was present in similar to 95% of patients in both the FMF and control groups with COVID-19 infection. Asymptomatic infection was detected in two patients in the paediatric FMF group (8.0%) and 17 patients in the control group (33.3%) (P = .017). Mild disease was observed in 23 paediatric FMF patients (92.0%) and 28 control patients (54.9%) (P = .001), whereas moderate disease was present in only 6 control patients (11.7%) (0 vs 11.7%, P = .074). Severe or critical disease was not observed in any patients. Conclusion Paediatric FMF patients receiving colchicine had no moderate COVID-19 disease compared to the control group. We suggest that colchicine use may tune down the severity of the disease even if it does not prevent COVID-19 infection.
