Özet

Introduction Behcet's disease is a rare, chronic disorder. The cause of Behcet's disease is unknown. It is believed to be caused by an autoimmune reaction. As in other chronic autoimmune diseases, Behcet's disease may show a subclinical adrenal failure and some changes in cortisol levels. We aimed to evaluate adrenal gland function in Behcet's disease patients.
