  • Familial Mediterranean Fever (FMF).

  • Cryopyrinopathies (CAPs).

  • Mevalonate Kinase Deficiency (MKD).

  • TRAPS syndrome.

  • Haploinsufficiency of A20 (HA 20).

  • Still's disease.

  • Schnitzler syndrome.

  • VEXAS syndrome.

  • ADA2 deficiency.

  • Some diseases are much rarer: NLRP12, PSTPiP1, JAK1, CDC42 mutations, etc.

Qu'est-Ce Qu'une Maladie Autoinflammatoire ?
Autoinflammatory diseases 

An autoinflammatory disease is a disease linked to disorders of innate immunity. Innate immunity is immediate immunity. It defends against danger signals picked up by the body's white blood cells.


These signals may be infections, temperature variations, hormonal fluctuations or stress.

Pseudoérysipèle de la cheville FMF
Douleurs abdominales FMF
Fièvre FMF
Familial Mediterranean fever

Familial Mediterranean Fever (FMF) is a rare disease, more common in patients from around the Mediterranean.
FMF is a hereditary disease, formerly known as periodic illness.

PBR Amylose
BGSA: rouge congo
Inflammatory amyloidosis (AA)


AA amyloidosis is a rare disease associated with the deposition of plaques of amyloid A protein in tissues.

AA amyloidosis is secondary to chronic inflammation.

Urticaire Cryopyrinopathies
Cryopyrinopathies or CAPS

Cryopyrinopathies (or CAPS for Cryopyrin-Associated Periodic Syndrome) are rare auto-inflammatory genetic diseases associated with mutations in the NLRP3 gene.

Douleurs abdominales TRAPS
Fièvre TRAPS

Tumour necrosis factor receptor 1-associated periodic syndrome (TRAPS) is a rare disease.

It is an autoinflammatory disease.

Douleurs abdominales MKD
Adénopathie cervicale MKD
Aphte MKD
Mevalonate kinase deficiency

Mevalonate kinase deficiency is a very rare disease.


MKD is a genetic autoinflammatory disease,

formerly known as hyper-IgD syndrome or HIDS.

Scanner cerebral DADA2: AVC
Livedo pied DADA 2

ADA2 deficiency is a very rare autoinflammatory disease.


DADA2 is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder linked to mutations in the ADA2 gene (formerly known as CECR1).

Atteinte articulaire maladie de Still

Still's disease is a rare autoinflammatory disorder.


It is classified as a paediatric-onset form if it starts before the age of 16, and as an adult-onset form if it starts after the age of 16.

It can affect several organs.

Acné: PSTPiP1
Diseases linked to PSTPIP1 mutations

Diseases associated with mutations in PSTPIP1 (proline-serine-threonine phosphatase-interacting protein 1) are rare autoinflammatory diseases. The gene encodes the PSTPIP1 protein, which is involved in the cytoskeleton of cells. In the event of a mutation, patients develop an inflammatory disease known as PAID (PSTPiP1 associated inflammatory disease).

Urticaire Schnitzler Syndrome

The Schnitzler Syndrome was defined by Dr Liliane Schnitzler, a French dermatologist, in 1972 as the occurrence in adulthood of urticaria, fatigue, bone and/or joint pain and the discovery in the blood of an excess protein called monoclonal gammopathy.

Aphte HA 20
Haploinsufficiency of A20 (HA20)
  • A20 haploinsufficiency is a rare disease.

  • The presence of a single mutation can cause the disease.

Portrait senior VEXAS Syndrome
Chondrite Vexas Syndrome
VEXAS Syndrome

VEXAS syndrome is a rare new autoinflammatory disease discovered at the end of 2020.


A genetic disease caused by somatic mutation (acquired during life).


The acronym VEXAS stands for : Vacuoles, Enzyme E1, X-linked, Autoinflammatory, Somatic.

Eruption érythémateuse: syndrome Sitrame
SITRAME Syndrome 

SITRAME Syndrome is a probable autoinflammatory syndrome in adults.


No gene known to date.


It is a new clinical entity, with a recurrent macular eruption predominantly on the trunk, associated with systemic inflammation. The acronym "SITRAME" stands for "Systemic Inflammatory Trunk Recurrent Acute Macular Eruption".

Les maladies autoinflammatoires inclassées

These are autoinflammatory diseases that are currently "unclassified".


Patients present criteria for autoinflammatory diseases after exclusion of differential diagnoses. However, it is not possible to determine a disease defined by a set of criteria, and there are no mutations found in any genetic analyses carried out using techniques available to date.

Mains maladies liée aux mutations de JAC1
Tumeur calcifiée liée aux mutations de JAC1
Peau bras, maladie liée aux mutations de JAC1

Rare immuno-inflammatory disease first described in 2017.


As this is a genetic disease caused by mutations in the JAK1 gene, the proposed acronym is JAID for "JAK1 associated inflammatory disease".

Déformation articulaire du petit doigt
Coxite destructrice
LACC1 mutation disease

A rare genetic auto-inflammatory disease first described in 2015.

Just under 100 patients described worldwide to date.
Patients are predominantly from the Mediterranean basin (Middle East, North Africa and Turkey), but cases have been described in China, India and Black Africa.
There is a discreet female predominance
In 90% of cases, symptoms begin before the age of 3

As this is a genetic disease caused by mutations in the JAK1 gene, the proposed acronym is JAID for "JAK1 associated inflammatory disease".

H - Syndrome

This is a rare genetic autoinflammatory disease first described in 2008.
There are around 200 patients with this disease worldwide to date, mainly in Arab countries and India, but other cases have been described in Europe, Asia and Africa, affecting both men and women.
In the majority of cases, symptoms begin in childhood and the disease is diagnosed in adolescence.

Diseases linked to CDC42 mutations

Actin is an essential component of the cell, enabling it to organize its shape and contents (known as the cytoskeleton), multiply and interact with its environment.  

Autoinflammatory diseases linked to mutations in CDC42 belong to the family of autoinflammatory actinopathies. These diseases are linked to a defect in the regulation of actin cytoskeleton dynamics, in which the CDC42 protein plays a key role.

Maladie génétique
Autoinflammatory actinopathies

Actin is an essential component of the cell, enabling it to organize its shape and contents (known as the cytoskeleton), multiply and interact with its environment.  

Actinopathies with autoinflammatory manifestations are a new emerging group of autoinflammatory diseases, linked to defects in the regulation of actin cytoskeleton dynamics in cells.

Maladie cosmopolite
Diseases linked to RIPK1 mutations

This is a group of rare auto-inflammatory diseases of recent description (2018). These diseases are caused by mutations in the RIPK1 (Receptor Interacting Protein serine/threonine Kinase 1) gene.

RIPK1 is a key protein in cell metabolism, involved in the regulation of inflammation, cell survival and cell death.

Péricardite récidivante
Recurrent pericarditis

Pericarditis is an inflammation of the pericardium, the membrane that surrounds the heart. Its function is to protect the heart.

These inflammatory episodes occur intermittently and are interspersed with periods of remission.

It can be caused by various factors, such as viral infections, autoimmune or autoinflammatory diseases, but more often than not the cause is not identified (idiopathic pericarditis).
