Abstract

Background: Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is characterized by sporadic, acute attacks of fever and serositis. Cardiovascular involvement is one of the leading cause of morbidity and mortality among FMF patients. Herein, we aimed to evaluate cardiac autonomic functions in FMF patients without overt cardiac symptoms.
