Behcet’s Syndrome

Behcet’s Syndrome: Overview

Behcet’s Syndrome is a kind of inflammatory condition which can affect different parts of the body. It is a rare and poorly understood disorder that results in the inflammation of blood vessels (vasculitis) and tissues. The disorder can damage the veins and arteries of all sizes throughout the body.

Behcet’s Syndrome is supposedly an autoimmune disorder, in which the immune system of affected individuals attacks the healthy cells and causes blood-vessel inflammation in different parts of the body.

Behcet’s Syndrome is known by some other names as well. Some of the commonly-used synonyms of the disorder are Behcet’s disease, BD, and Adamantiades-Behcet’s Syndrome.

Behcet’s Syndrome is not a contagious condition. The disorder can affect people of all age groups, though it usually affects people in their 20s and 30s. Although both men and women can be affected by Behcet’s Syndrome, men have a slightly higher risk of developing the disorder as compared to women.

Causes of Behcet’s Syndrome

The exact cause behind the occurrence of Behcet’s syndrome is not clearly known. Nonetheless, it is believed that some genetic and environmental factors trigger the condition.

Among the genetic factors, in particular, a certain variation in the HLA-B gene – which provides instructions for the production of a protein that plays a crucial role in the immune system – is linked to the risk of developing Behcet’s Syndrome.

Besides the genetic factors, the occurrence of Behcet’s Syndrome is also possibly associated with some bacterial or viral infections. Furthermore, it is also suggested that the condition adversely affects the body’s ability to properly regulate and manage inflammation.

Symptoms of Behcet’s Syndrome

The symptoms of Behcet’s Syndrome are different for different patients and may depend on the parts of the body affected by the inflammation of blood vessels and tissues. In most cases, the symptoms of the disorder generally follow a pattern of remission (disappearance) and relapse (recurrence). The severity of the symptoms may decrease over a period of time.

Some of the symptoms of Behcet’s Syndrome are:

  • Mouth sores (canker sores)
  • Sores on the genitals (ulcers)
  • Skin rashes
  • Acne-like spots on the skin
  • Inflammation of the parts of the eye
  • Blurred vision
  • Pain and stiffness in the joints
  • Swollen joints
  • Headaches
  • Blood clots
  • Inflammation of the digestive system.

In severe cases of Behcet’s Syndrome, there is usually a high risk of potentially life-threatening problems, such as heart strokes or permanent loss of vision (blindness).

There is presently no cure of Behcet’s Syndrome. The Treatment of Behcet’s Syndrome is largely aimed at controlling its symptoms, reducing inflammation of blood vessels, and avoiding potential complications. The treatment involves the use of anti-inflammatory medications (steroids), immunosuppressants, and biological therapies (involving medicines that target the biological processes linked to the process of inflammation).
