Abstract

Behcet’s disease is an uncommon, chronic, vascular-inflammatory disease with an unknown origin. Clinical symptoms essentially consist of oral ulcers, genital ulcers and eye inflammation. Because of the inflammation of blood vessels there can be various symptoms related to different organs. The frequency of psychiatric symptoms in Behcet’s disease is reported as %8-50 in medical literature, although there hasn’t been too much report about the comorbidity of psychotic symptoms with Behcet’s disease. Therefore, we wanted to present a case of Behcet’s disease complicated with psychotic symptoms.
