53 Positive pathergy test THE FIRST CASEOral aphtous+Erythema nodosumDVTPositive pathergy testBehcet’s disease
54 THE SECOND CASEOral aphtous + Pseudofolliculitis Lesions DVT Positive pathergy test Behcet’s disease
55 THE THIRD CASE Oral aphtous + Arterial aneurysm Positive pathergy test Increased ICP, Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis and lower limb DVTArterial aneurysmPositive pathergy testBehcet’s disease
56 VIRCHOW'S TRIAD Proposes that VTE occurs as a result of Alterations in blood flow (stasis)Vascular endothelial injuryAlterations in the constituents of the blood (inherited or acquired hypercoagulable state)
57 RISK FACTORS FOR VENOUS THROMBOSIS Inherited thrombophiliaFactor V Leiden mutationProthrombin gene mutationProtein S deficiencyProtein C deficiencyAntithrombin (AT) deficiencyRare disorders Dysfibrinogenemia
58 RISK FACTORS FOR VENOUS THROMBOSIS Acquired disordersMalignancySurgery, especially orthopedicTraumaPregnancyOral contraceptivesImmobilizationAntiphospholipid antibody syndromeMyeloproliferative disordersPolycythemia veraEssential thrombocythemiaPresence of a central venous catheterCongestive failureHormone replacement therapyTamoxifen, Thalidomide, LenalidomidePNHIBDNephrotic syndromeBehcet disease
59 SCREENING FOR HYPERCOAGULABLE STATE Screening for a hypercoagulable state is not generally recommended unless the results are likely to change subsequent therapy for the patient or family membersThere is currently no consensus regarding who to test for inherited thrombophilia
60 SCREENING FOR HYPERCOAGULABLE STATE Only patients with one or more of the following:Initial thrombosis occurring prior to age 50 without an immediately identified risk factor (ie, idiopathic or unprovoked venous thrombosis)A family history of venous thromboembolism (ie, first-degree relatives with VTE prior to age 50)Recurrent venous thrombosisThrombosis occurring in unusual vascular beds such as portal, hepatic, mesenteric, or cerebral veinsA history of warfarin-induced skin necrosis, which suggests protein C deficiency

64 DEFINITIONBehcet's disease is a multisystem autoimmune disorder presenting with recurrent oral and genital ulcerations as well as ocular involvement.
65 EPIDEMIOLOGY Affects young males and females Males and females are affected equallyMales often have more severe diseaseMediterranean region, the Middle East, and the Far EastPrevalence ranges from 13.5 to 20 per 100,000Prevalence in the United States and Europe have ranged from 0.12 to 7.5 per 100,000
66 PATHOGENESISThe etiology and pathogenesis of this syndrome remain obscureIncrease of circulating autoantibodiesAnti-Enolase of endothelial cellsAnti-Selenium binding proteinAnti-Saccharomyces cerevisiae antibodiesAssociation of Behcet's disease with HLA-B*5, HLA-B*51 and the MHC Class I region is confirmedAn association with ILI0 and the IL23R-ILI2RB2 locus were also observedPerhaps infectious acts as a immune activity trigger
67 PATHOLOGY The classic Behçet’s lesion is Necrotizing leukocytoclastic obliterative perivasculitisVenous thrombosisLymphocytic infiltration of capillaries, veins and arteries of all sizesCellular infiltration is often neutrophils and CD4+ T lymphocytesIn some patients, diffuse inflammatory disease, involving all layers of large vessels and resulting to formation of pseudoaneurysms, suggests vasculitis of vasa vasorum.
68 CLINICAL FEATURES Mucocutaneous The recurrent aphthous ulcerations Are a sine qua non for the diagnosisThe ulcers are usually painfulAre shallow or deep with a central yellowish necrotic baseAppear singly or in cropsAre located anywhere in the oral cavityLess than 10 mm in diameter are seen in 85% of patients, while large or herpetiform lesions are less frequentThe ulcers persist for 1-2 weeks and subside without leaving scars
69 CLINICAL FEATURES The genital ulcers Pseudofolliculitis Are less common but more specificPainfulDo not affect the glans penis or urethraProduce scrotal scarsPseudofolliculitisErythema nodosumAcne-like exanthem
70 CLINICAL FEATURES Eye involvement Occurring in 50% of patients Is usually present at the onset but may also develop within the first few yearsIncludesAnterior uveitis (Iritis )Posterior uveitisBilateral pan uveitis with scarringIs the most dreaded complication, since it occasionally progresses rapidly to blindness.Retinal vessel occlusionsOptic neuritis
71 CLINICAL FEATURES Articular involvement Seen in a 50% of patients Non-deforming arthritis or arthralgiaAffects knees and ankles
72 CLINICAL FEATURES Vascular involvement Venous involvement SVT or DVT is seen in 30% of patientsThe superior vena cava is obstructed occasionallyPulmonary emboli are a rare complicationArterial involvementOccurs in less than 5% of patientsPresents withAortitisPeripheral arterial aneurysmArterial thrombosisPulmonary artery vasculitis presenting with dyspnea, cough, chest pain, hemoptysis, and infiltrates on chest roentgenograms has been reported in 5% of patients
73 Behcet’s disease involve blood vessels of all sizes - small, medium, and large - both arteries and veins
74 CLINICAL FEATURES Neurologic involvement 5-10% Mainly in the parenchymal form (80%) it is associated with brain stem involvementIL-6 is persistently raised in CSF of these patientsDural sinus thrombi (20%) are associated with headache and increased ICP
75 CLINICAL FEATURES Gastrointestinal involvement Is seen more frequently in patients from JapanConsists of mucosal ulcerations of the gut, resembling Crohn's diseaseGenital tract involvementEpididymitis is seen in 5% of patients
76 PATHERGY TESTNonspecific skin inflammatory reactivity to any scratches or intradermal saline injection is a common and specific manifestationA papule or pustul 2 mm or more in size developing 24 to 48 hours after oblique insertion of a 20 to 25 gauge needle 5mm intra-demal, generally performed on the forearm
77 DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS Differential diagnosis of recurrent oral ulcers includesHerpes simplexBenign aphthous ulcersInflammatory bowel diseaseStevens-Johnson syndromeSLEDental prostheticsOral hygiene productsMedications such as methotrexate can cause oral ulcersPemphigoid, pemphigus vulgaris, cicatricial pemphigoid,Lichen planusLinear IgA disease
78 DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS Differential diagnosis of genital ulcers include:HSVSyphilisChancroidLymphogranuloma venereumFixed drug reactionsNeoplasmsTrauma
79 DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS Other causes of inflammatory eye disease, neurologic disease, vascular disease, arthritis, are includedSLEIBDSarcoidosisReactive arthritisPsoriatic arthritisAnkylosing spondylitisJuvenile idiopathic arthritisFMFMSTuberculosisHIVMalignancies
80 DIAGNOSISDiagnosis is clinical and based on internationally agreed diagnostic criteriaRecurrent oral ulceration plus two of the following:Recurrent genital ulcerationEye lesionsSkin lesionsPathergy test
81 LABORATORY FINDINGSLaboratory findings are mainly nonspecific indices of inflammation, such asLeukocytosisElevated erythrocyte sedimentation rateElevated C-reactive protein levels
82 TREATMENT Mucocutaneouce involvement Topical glucocorticoids (triamcinolone) in the form of mouthwash or pasteTopical Sucralfate 1g/5mL four times daily as a mouthwashColchicineIn more serious cases, Thalidomide (l00 mg/d)Prednisone starting dose is 15 mg/day, with tapering to 10 mg/day after one week and discontinuation of prednisone entirely over two to three weeks period
83 TREATMENT Uveitis Sight-threatening uveitis Prednisone(I mg/kg per day) and azathioprine (2-3 mg/kg per day)Sight-threatening uveitisCyclosporin (5mg/kg) +/- azathioprinePanuveitis refractory or intolerant to other immunosuppressivesAnti-TNF therapy
84 TREATMENTArthritisColchicine 1 to 2 mg/day, administered in divided dosesNSAIDsPrednisone 10 mg/day is an appropriate starting doseJoint complaints not controlled by colchicine
85 TREATMENT CNS-Behcet's syndrome Prednisone(I mg/kg per day) and azathioprine (2-3 mg/kg per day)
86 PROGNOSISBehçet’s disease typically has a waxing and waning course characterized by exacerbations and remissionsThe disease appears to be more severe in young, male, and Middle Eastern or Far Eastern patientsThe severity of the syndrome usually abates with timeApart from the patients with CNS-Behcet's syndrome and major vessel disease, the life expectancy seems to be normal and the only serious complication is blindness
