I have the syndrome, as did my mother, my second brother, and his oldest son. I had biopsies taken of the so-called hives and were told that they were neutrophiles from the blood. Is it common to have so many in one family to have this syndrome? Also, how often does it skip a generation? See answer
My daughter was recently diagnosed with familial cold autoinflammatory syndrome. I have many questions and concerns. Can you refer me to valid useful information? See answer
