We report here a ß- thalassemia major case (homozygous IVS-1-110 G-A) associated with Familial Mediterranean Fever (FMF) (homozygous 694 Met-Val). Our patient’s clinical course revealed a possible synergistic effect between colchicine and desferrioxamine (DFO) However, this could be a only a coincidence, as under colchicine therapy, fever attacks may appear, this may be the topic of a further investigation.

Keywords: Thalassemia, Familial Mediterranean Fever (FMF), Desferrioxamine (DFO), Colchicine.
