Conditions with similar signs and symptoms from Orphanet
Mevalonic aciduria (MVA; see this term) is also caused by a mutation in the MVK gene, but it results in a nearly complete MVK deficiency. Other autoinflammatory disorders like familial Mediterranean fever (FMF), TNF receptor-associated periodic syndrome (TRAPS) and Muckle-Wells syndrome (see these terms) should be eliminated. In children, the clinical picture of HIDS can be indistinguishable from periodic fever aphtosis pharyngitis adenitis (PFAPA) syndrome.
