ベーチェット病不全型例と疑い例 Two Cases of Incomplete Type and Suspected Type of Behcet's Disease
We report two cases of an incomplete type and a suspected type of Behçet's disease that met the diagnostic criteria. Both patients complained of acute sore throat with multiple oropharyngeal aphthous ulcers. The first case had additional diagnostic symptoms of genital ulcers, skin lesions of erythema nodosum with gastrointestinal ulcers, leading to a diagnosis of incomplete type of Behçet's disease. The second patient had additional diagnostic symptoms of genital ulcers with positive HLA-B51 and abnomal signals on brain MRI, leading to a diagnosis of suspected type of Behçet's disease.
