Behcet’s syndrome

A rare multisystem disorder with recurrent mouth ulcers and genital ulcers and inflammation of the eyes, joints, brain, skin, blood vessels and intestines.

The cause of Behcet’s syndrome is still unknown but the disorder is heavily associated with HLA-B51, a genetically determined Histocompatability antigen.  It affects twice as many men as women.  Treatment of Behcet’s syndrome is usually difficult and may involve corticosteroid drugs and immunosuppressant drugs.  The condition usually becomes long term.
