An Adolescent Chinese Boy with Beh?et's Disease

GCF Mok, J Hui

Behçet's disease is a rare childhood disease. Early establishment of the diagnosis is important both for the institution of appropriate treatment as well as for recognition of potentially disabling complications. We report this condition in an adolescent Chinese boy who presented with recurrent oral ulcers, uveitis, erythema nodosum as well as arthritis, epididymitis and superficial thrombophlebitis.
