We report a case of familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) complicated by nephrotic syndrome and renal failure due to amyloidosis. This case is unique in that the severity of joint involvement necessitated bilateral hip replacement and later caused cervical apophyseal joint fusion, the latter being a lesion not previously described in the course of FMF.
