Abstract

No data are available from controlled studies regarding treatment modalities of patients presenting with Behcet's disease complicated by concurrent thrombosis. This lack of evidence implicates the need for large scale and co-ordinated registries including data on the acute treatment as well as the prevention of future thrombotic events in this clinical setting. The diagnostic criteria of the "International Study Group for Behcet's Disease" may well serve as a basis for this approach.
