Behçet's disease is a systemic autoimmune vasculitis. Although various clinical findings can be observed depending on the pathologic features caused by the blood vessels involved, the classic triad of the disease includes oral aphthae, genital ulcers, and uveitis. Although complications involving the aorta or the vena cava inferior can prove fatal, thrombophlebitis in the superficial veins of the lower extremities are more commonly observed. Some patients can remain asymptomatic for a long…

NÖTROFİL LENFOSİT VE PLATELET LENFOSİT ORANLARININ AKTİF BEHÇET HASTALARINDAKİ ÖNEMİ
TLDR
The aim of this study is to reveal the relationship between C-reactive protein (CRP), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), neutrophil to lymphocytes ratio (NLR), platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR) and mean platelet volume (MPV) and Behcet which is a systemic inflammatory disease.

Vascular Manifestations of Behçet’s Disease
TLDR
Vascular involvement may be very challenging in all phases of treatment beginning from diagnosis till recovery and remission, and in itself increases the mortality.
Wound healing in Behçet's syndrome.
TLDR
Biopsy-induced trauma may cause increased inflammation in BS, but wound healing is not altered, and the wound area healed similarly in both groups.
Pharmacotherapy for Behcet's syndrome.
TLDR
It is concluded that further randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind trials should be carried out to compare cyclosporine, azathioprine and benzathine-penicillin versus placebo in order to make the results generalizable and comparable.
Short-term trial of etanercept in Behçet's disease: a double blind, placebo controlled study.
TLDR
Etanercept did not affect the pathergy reaction and the cutaneous response to MSU crystals, however, the drug was effective in suppressing most of the mucocutaneous manifestations of BD.

Relationships of HLA-B51 or B5 genotype with Behcet's disease clinical characteristics: systematic review and meta-analyses of observational studies.
TLDR
In BD, HLA-B51/B5 carriage predominates in males and is associated with moderately higher prevalences of genital ulcers, ocular and skin manifestations, and a decreased prevalence of gastrointestinal involvement.
