Pediatr Neurol. 2001 Oct;25(4):332-5. doi: 10.1016/s0887-8994(01)00314-9.


Behçet's disease is a chronic, relapsing multisystem disorder, and nervous system involvement is one of the serious manifestations. Neuro-Behçet is rarely reported in children and may present with a wide variety of symptoms because the entire neuraxis may be affected. A case of cerebral vein thrombosis secondary to Behçet's disease is presented. The patient has recovered without any visual loss and had no complaints at 1-year follow-up.
