Behçet's disease is recognized as a multisystemic disease with various organ involvement including skin, mucous membrane, eyes, joints, veins, arteries, gastrointestinal tract, meninges, and brain. In this review, Behçet's disease has been approached from two rheumatologic perspectives- as an intermittent and periodic arthritic syndrome and as a vasculitic syndrome. Association with seronegative spondyloarthropathy and other autoimmune diseases will also be discussed.
