Colchicine is the mainstay of treatment for familial Mediterranean fever. We investigated the frequency of leukopenia in 213 patients with familial Mediterranean fever treated with standard doses of colchicine (0.5-2.0 mg/day). We found that 23 patients (10.8%) had reversible leukopenia, 3 moderate, and none severe and that their rate of infections was not increased.
