What is the Criteria for Diagnosing Beçhet’s disease?
Discussion Beçhet’s disease (BD) is a multisystem vasculitis named for the Turkish dermatologist, Hulusi Beçhet. It has a prevalance in one study of 5.2-7.1 per 100,000 adults. It is more common in males than females but it depends on the cohort studied and there is variation among different ancestral groups. Venous vasculitis usually causes thrombotic events whereas arterial vasculitis causes aneurysms and thrombosis. Involvement of the central nervous system vasculature can be a major problem. Central venous thrombosis can cause isolated intracranial hypertension but also aphasia, hemiparesis and sei...

Researchers Identify New Gene Variants Associated With Risk For Behcet's Disease
Researchers have identified four new regions on the human genome associated with Behcet's disease, a painful and potentially dangerous condition found predominantly in people with ancestors along the Silk Road. For nearly 2,000 years, traders used this 4,000-mile network linking the Far East with Europe to exchange goods, culture and, in the case of the Silk Road disease, genes. National Institutes of Health researchers and their Turkish and Japanese collaborators published their findings in the advance online issue of Nature Genetics...
