Özet

Behcet's disease is a multisystem inflammatory disorder that is classified among the vasculitides and can affect all types and sizes of blood vessels. Vascular manifestations of Behcet's disease are venous and arterial occlusion, and arterial aneurysms. As vasculitis of the vasa vasorum is the main pathological hallmark of Behcet's disease, it is generally seen as superficial thrombo-phlebitis or occlusion of the major veins; however arterial obstruction and aneurysms may also be seen to a lesser extent. Iliac artery stenosis is highly uncommon.
