Abstract:
Behcet's disease is a rare vasculitic disorder and a multisystemic disease with variable systemic effects. The disease appears to involve an autoimmune response triggered by exposure to an infectious agent. Clinical criteria are; a positive result of the pathergie test, bipolar aphthoses, eye damage. Cutaneous manifestations can occur in up 75% of patients with Behcet disease and can range from acneiform lesions, to nodules and erythema nodosum. Ocular disease has the greatest morbidity, followed by vascular disease generally from active vasculitis. Our objective is to expose the dermatoscopic aspect of the skin manifestations of Behçet's disease
