This is a very rare autosomal dominant disease which was first described in 2008. It starts shortly after birth and somewhat resembles CAPS, with at least some features of cold induction, fever, limb aches, ‘nettle’ rash and deafness. As in all the inherited fever syndromes there are raised levels of inflammatory markers.
