Behçet’s disease is a rare, vascular autoinflammatory illness that is little understood. Using a question-and-answer format – along with illustrations and photographs – this book gives easy-to-understand explanations of common patient concerns. Detailed information is provided on causes, symptoms, complications, and treatments for Behçet’s disease. Physicians in training and/or new to the field of Behçet’s will find that included material is referenced and evidence-based, and that the book has been reviewed in advance of publication by clinicians noted in the research and treatment of Behçet’s. This book includes numerous in-text Web links to relevant information at the National Institutes of Health and other online sources. The companion disc includes informational resources and illustrations to help you better understand all of the material from the book; there are also links to international Behçet’s patient organizations and to free public-access medical journal articles about Behçet’s.
