Behçet disease is a multi-systemic, chronic inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology. It is characterized by recurrent genital and oral ulcerations, ocular and cutaneous lesions, SNC alterations, involvement of the articulations and cardiovascular alterations. The oral ulcers can be big, small and herpetic-form, with a typical aftose distribution. The Behçet disease diagnostic is based on the clinical signs and symptoms of the various anatomic regions affected. The most common used drugs for the treatment are corticosteroids and immune suppressors. We are presenting a clinical case where, through the clinical manifestations of the oral lesions and multidisciplinary treatment, the diagnosis of disease was reached.
