Mevalonic aciduria (MVA) is an inborn error of isoprene biosynthesis caused by mevalonate kinase (MVK) gene mutations. Described below is a case of a Palestinian MVA patient suffering from prolonged fevers as well as from hepatic fibrosis - a rare feature of MVA. Also demonstrated is a unique genotype - heterozigosity of two novel MVK mutations; V8F (t25a), and F38I (t112a).
