Dr. Goldstein describes Behcet's disease.

Dr. Goldstein:
Behçet’s disease is a chronic vasculitis. So it is a chronic inflammation of the vasculature which includes arteries and arterioles and capillaries, and therefore, this can be manifested in almost all the organs. It can cause problems in the eyes, in the mid-joints, and arthritis, but it is frequently diagnosed by recurrent aphthous ulcers in the mouth and on the vulva.
