Behçet`s disesase is a vasculitis that manifests with oral and genital ulcerations, skin lesions, uveitis, vascular, central nervous system and gastrointestinal involvement. While most patients develop mucocutaneous and genital ulcers along with eye disease, other patients may also present with arthritis, frank vasculitis, thrombophlebitis and central nervous system disease. This is the first case in the literature, where the diagnosis of Behçet`s disease was made secondary to concomitant involvement of coronary and carotid arteries.
