Majeed syndrome (Autoinflammatory Alliance, 2014).

‘Majeed syndrome presents in infancy or early childhood, and symptoms can persist throughout adulthood. Patients can have recurrent episodes of fever, along with a very painful inflammatory bone condition called Chronic Recurrent Multifocal Osteomyelitis (CRMO). This bone inflammation can lead to many health complications, including slow growth, joint deformities (contractures) and severe pain.

Patients with Majeed syndrome also have a blood disorder called Dyserythropoitic anemia. People with this condition can have fatigue, pale skin, general weakness, and shortness of breath. Patients with Majeed often have inflammatory disorders on their skin, with Sweet syndrome (also known as acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis) being the most common finding’.
