Therapeutic advances in chronic disease
Behçet disease is a chronic inflammatory systemic disorder, characterized by a relapsing and remitting course. It manifests with oral and genital ulcerations, skin lesions, uveitis, and vascular, central nervous system and gastrointestinal involvement. The main histopathological finding is a widespread vasculitis of the arteries and veins of any si...

Introduction and objectives: Behçet disease (BD) is a systemic immune-mediated vasculitis of unknown origin characterised by recurrent orogenital ulceration, ocular inflammation and skin lesions.The aim of our study was to identify ear, nose and throat (ENT) manifestations associated with BD. Patients and methodsRetrospective review of the medical ...
Brainstem is the most common site of involvement in neuro-Behçet syndrome (NBS). On the other hand, the critical importance of this anatomical region in the regulation of sleep has been disregarded in the literature. We aimed to investigate the microstructure of sleep in patients with Behçet syndrome (BS) and NBS. Patients were allocated to 2 group...

The inflammatory systemic autoimmune diseases can affect the peripheral and central nervous systems in diverse ways. In this chapter, the neurologic presentation of connective tissue disorders and vasculitis is discussed. In addition, the differential diagnosis of central and peripheral nervous system syndromes in relation to these disorders as wel...

Intracardiac thrombosis is a rare manifestation of cardiac involvement in Behçet's disease, and it may be mistaken for a heart tumor. In this letter we present the case of a patient diagnosed with Behçet's disease who was incidentally found to have a mass in the right atrium suspicious of a cardiac tumor. Nevertheless, cardiac magnetic resonance sh...

Vascular complications of Behçet's disease include occlusion of vessels and arterial aneurysm formation, which is prone to rupture. Early type II endoleak repair following an endovascular stent-graft procedure for a ruptured descending aortic aneurysm in a 31-year-old man with Behçet's disease is described. Endovascular stent-grafts provide an impo...

Several lines of evidence indicate that oral microbial flora play a critical role in the pathogenesis of Behçet disease. Saliva flow rate, buffer capacity and microorganism content are very important in the maintenance of oral health. We aimed to evaluate saliva flow rate, pH, buffer capacity and Streptococcus mutans and Lactobacilli content along ...
We describe a flare of Behçet’s syndrome in a 42-year-old man who presented with florid mucocutaneous manifestations, headache and vomiting, but without meningeal or neurologic signs. A single, non-enhancing cortical lesion was found in the frontal lobe by computed tomography and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging studies. Diffusion-weighted analysis ...
