Handan Işın Ãzışık*, Sibel Kızkın*, Cemal Ãzcan*.
Behcetâs 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-BehÃ§etâs disease in whom the spinal cord MRI was abnormal.
