  • Look Inside

It is difficult to discriminate between relapsing severe ulcer of the oral cavity or pharynx and Behçet disease, because there are many disease making oral or pharyngeal ulcerative change.

Behçet disease is systemic disease which affect mucous membrane, skin and eye peculiarly. Out of these, there is a strange type invading gastrointes-tine tract selectively. To diagnose intestinal Beh-çet's disease, it is important to find systemic symp-tom or findings except oral or pharyngeal ulcer. Therefore it is important to investigate not only local findings but whole body.

In this report, we described a case of intestinal Behçet's disease with relapsing severe ulcer.
