Abstract

Aim: Dermatoglyphic signs are associated with genetic and environmental factors. The skin patterns of the hands can give clues about the presence of various diseases. Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is an inherited disease characterized by periodic recurrent fever, abdominal or joint pain. In this study, we aimed to find out if there are dermatoglyphic findings specific to FMF disease.
