Behcet Syndrome

What is Behcet Syndrome

Behcet Syndrome is a multisystem vasculitic syndrome of unknown etiology named after Hulusi Behçet, who described the clinical triad of aphthous ulcers, genital ulcers, and iritis in 1937. However, it is believed that this constellation of symptoms was actually first noted in Hippocratic times. In 1946, Adamantiades described thrombophlebitis as the fourth symptom in this syndrome. It is now well recognized that Behcet Syndrome encompasses not only mucocutaneous, ocular, and vascular manifestations but also musculoskeletal, neurologic, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, and genitourinary manifestations.

There is great variability in the expression of clinical and genetic manifestations in different ethnic groups and geographic locations.
