About the book
Behçet's disease is a multisystem inflammatory disorder characterized by recurrent oral aphthae, genital ulcers, skin lesions, uveitis, joint involvement, and vascular lesions. The central nervous system, genitourinary system, gastrointestinal system, and respiratory system involvements can also be seen. The fact that the clinical spectrum of the disease is very wide, sometimes years go by between its first appearance and the occurrence of subsequent symptoms, and its course with remissions and relapses creates difficulties in making the correct diagnosis. For this reason, even if the patients with suspected Behçet's disease do not fulfill the diagnostic criteria, it would be appropriate to follow up closely and be followed up for possible systemic involvement. Although the underlying pathology in this disease is known as vasculitis, its exact etiopathogenesis has not been fully elucidated yet. The aim of treatment in Behçet's disease, which causes significant morbidity worldwide, is to suppress acute attacks and prevent organ damage, to create remission, and to minimize relapses. The treatment of the disease is planned by taking into account the individual characteristics of the patient, the severity of the disease and the affected organs. In this book project, early diagnosis of Behçet's disease, diagnostic criteria, differential diagnosis, disease activity and severity, and algorithmic treatment approaches will be extensively reviewed with up-to-date data.
