SALAS CABRERA, René; SAGUE LARREA, Jorge  and  LAURENCIO MENA, Ariel. Bechet´s disease: Case report. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2007, vol.60, n.1, pp.67-68. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: To report one case of a rare disease. Methods: 39-year-old male patient presenting with the suspicion of sexually transmitted disease. We show several pictures of a clinical case diagnosed and treated in our hospital. We performed a bibliographic review on the disease and present its etiology, diagnosis and treatment. Results: We concluded it was Bechet’s disease because of the past medical history, clinical presentation, and diagnostic tests (positive pathergy test). Conclusions: Although it is a rare disease, we should always think of the diagnosis of Bechet’s disease in a patient with genital ulcers non responsive to treatment

Keywords : Bechet’s syndrome.
