Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is a hereditary auto-inflammatory disorder characterised by repeated attacks of fever associated with polyserositis. The association between multiple myeloma (MM) and FMF has been rarely reported. Here, we describe a 39-year-old male with a long history of FMF presenting with acute kidney injury that has been proved to be caused by myeloma cast nephropathy. To the best of our knowledge, this is the fourth case to be reported with such association in the literature.
