Abstract

Vasculo-Behçet's disease mainly affects the venous system and central or peripheral arteries. It is often difficult to diagnosis this due to the complexity of symptoms and the rarity. A 35-year-old man with refractory inguinal lymphadenitis was admitted to our hospital. He was diagnosed with left femoral arterial pseudoaneurysm by enhanced CT scan of the lower legs, and we performed an emergency operation. Seven months postoperatively, he suddenly developed deep venous thrombosis, and then, symptoms such as aphthous stomatitis and pudendal ulcer started to develop progressively, complicating his uveitis. Finally, he was diagnosed with vasculo-Behçet's disease.
