    Background: Behçet's disease is a chronic systemic inflammatory vasculitis with multi-organ involvement. The etiology remains unknown and despite the genetic correlation with HLA-B51, it is thought that certain environmental triggers such as viral and bacterial infections are necessary for the development of this disease. The purpose of this case series is to retrospectively study clinical characteristics of Behçet's disease and analyze the efficacy of a standardized treatment regimen. Methods: We analyzed 30 patients, aged 20-50 years old, with Behçet's disease in terms of clinical characteristics and treatment outcomes. Patient selection was based on the presence of recurrent oral ulcers plus at least two additional findings, including recurrent genital ulceration, ocular involvement, skin lesions, or positive pathergy test.
