Hereditary recurrent fever syndromes are rarely diagnosed in India, and the age at diagnosis is usually childhood or early adulthood. We present an adult male patient with recurrent fever since childhood who presented to us at 59 years of age and was subsequently diagnosed to have TNFR1-associated periodic fever syndrome that responded well to colchicine.
