  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 40-year-old woman presented with foreign body sensation in both eyes. She had been diagnosed as Behçet diasease due to systemic manifestations one week before. Conjunctival ulcer with hyperemia was present in both eyes. There were no signs of inflammation in the anterior chamber or the fundus. Biopsy of the ulcerated area showed vasculitis and infiltration of lymphocytes and neutrophils. The conjunctival ulcer was diagnosed as ocular manifestation of Behçet disease as it responded favorably to topical corticosteroid and as it developed concurrently with aphthous stomatitis. Behçet disease is a possibility in the etiological diagnosis of Behçet disease.
