Abstract

Behcet's disease is a multisystemic vasculitis of unknown etiology, which is characterized by recurrent urogenital ulceration, cutaneous eruptions, ocular manifestations, arthritis and vasculitis, and its diagnosis is based on clinical criteria. Herein, we report a case of a patient with Behcet's disease, who was successfully managed with anticoagulant and anti-inflammatory therapy for disseminated venous thrombosis leading to pleural effusion, Budd-Chiari syndrome and central nervous system involvement following coronary artery bypass grafting surgery.
