1. To review the contemporary literature and present an updated list of musculoskeletal and non-musculoskeletal imaging findings of patients with autoinflammatory diseases in our hospital. Most of these patients are found to have a genetic mutation that is responsible for their disease.

2. To present follow-up imaging findings, when available, and correlate those with patients’ symptoms and type of treatment administered in approximately 40 patients with autoinflammatory diseases such as Cryopyrin-associated autoinflammatory syndrome, familial Mediterranean fever, PAPA (pyogenic arthritis, pyoderma gangrenousum, and acne) syndrome and much more. These findings can be related to disease progression, treatment response or treatment-induced changes.

The diagnostic approach to fever of unknown origin (FUO) in a neutropenic child is challenging. Recommendations of the Children's Oncology Group and the ACR provide some guidance, but evidence basis for use of sinus CT in the acutely febrile neutropenic child is poorly established. This presentation assesses baseline paranasal sinus mucosal thickening in children in 2 separate cities and compares them to children with neutropenia undergoing sinus CT in the work-up of FUO.
