Özet

BACKGROUND: A relapsing systemic inflammatory process is a well-known feature of Behcet's disease. Because systemic inflammation and dyslipidemia are involved in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, Behcet's disease may play a part in the development of atherosclerosis. Lipid profile in Behcet's disease and the development of atherosclerosis remain to be controversial. In order to learn more about this relationship, our study compared blood lipid levels in healthy controls to those in patients with Behcet's disease during both their active and inactive stages.
