Behcet’s disease (BD) is a relatively rare multisystem inflammatory disorder characterized by the triad of oral and

genital ulcers and uveitis. The central nervous system (CNS) is involved in 4-49% of patients in the literature.

Transverse myelitis is a rare occurence, especially when it is the only neurological manifestation. We report here a 25

year-old man with neuro-Behçet’s disease in whom the spinal cord MRI was abnormal.

Key Words: Behçet disease, Spinal cord, Transverse myelitis, Magnetic resonance imaging
