The D/Ds of lymphoma vs tuberculosis (TB) were suggested by the radiologist and the same two differentials were made provisionally too on the basis of under lying symptoms, lymphadenopathy, polyserositis
and raised LDH levels.
Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is the most common autoinflammatory disease (AID), and it is characterized by spontaneous attack with fever, abdominal pain, and polyserositis
. It is the most common monogenic periodic fever syndrome that affects the Mediterranean people (1).
There are also reports about clozapine related pericarditis, pericardial effusion and polyserositis

The aim of this case report is to present an unusual complication (polyserositis

Further pathologic disorders included encephalopathy (2 birds; 33%), ingluvitis (1 bird; 17%), severe polyserositis
from bacterial septicemia (1 bird; 17%), and a severe osteodystrophia fibrosa as well as inflammation of the uropygial gland (1 bird; 17%).
Ascites was detected in 12%, hepatosplenomegaly in 9.2%, pleural effusion in 13.2% and polyserositis
in 10% patients.
At this point, due to the lack of a definite aetiology for the polyserositis
with effusive-constrictive pericarditis we suspected an IgG4-related disease.
