Destructive arthritis in Behçet's disease: a report of eight cases and literature review.
Frikha F, Marzouk S, Kaddour N, Frigui M, Bahloul Z.
Int J Rheum Dis. 2009 Sep;12(3):250-5.

Behçet's disease (BD) is a multisystemic disease with typically non-erosive and non-deforming joint manifestations. The occurrence of destructive arthritis in Behçet's disease has rarely been reported. Here we attempt to define the epidemiological, clinical and radiological features of this unusual type of osteoarticular manifestation of BD. We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 553 patients with Behçet's disease seen over 25-year period in our department of Internal Medicine (Sfax-Tunisia). All the patients fulfilled The International Study Group of Behçet's Disease criteria. Patients with destructive arthritis (defined by radiological changes: erosions and/or geodes and/or global narrowing of the joint space and/or ankylosis) were included in this study. Rheumatologic manifestations were observed in 71.1% patients. Eight patients (1.4% overall, 2% among patients with rheumatologic manifestations) had presented with destructive arthritis. The joint symptoms involved the knee in two cases, the wrist in one case, the elbow (one case), the sternoclavicular joint in two cases, the foot in one case and the tarsal scaphoïd in one case. There was recurrent arthritis at the same joint in the majority of cases. X-ray examinations revealed radiological changes: global narrowing of the joint in one case (knee), narrowing of the joint with geodes in three cases (knee, sternoclavicular), isolated geodes in two cases (tarsal scaphoid, foot) and severe lesions with ankylosis in two cases (two elbows, right wrist). Joint manifestations are common in patients with BD, but destructive arthritis is rare.

Behçet's Ulcerations in the Lower Extremity: A Case Report
Seth N. Clark, Anna L. Hronek, Nan E. Hodge, Nehad Soloman, Teri L. Vaughn
The Foot; Article in Press

Highlights
•Behçet's Disease is a systemic inflammatory disease which has organ and limb-threatening complications if treated improperly.
•We present a case review of a patient with un-diagnosed Behçet's Disease that had a lower extremity ulcerations as a results of the disease.
•Our diagnosis and treatment protocols are outlined to show how we successfully managed this patient's ulcerations and disease.
•Guidelines for treating ulcerations secondary to Behçet's are outlined.
Quote:
Behçet's Disease is a syndrome characterized by recurrent, painful oral aphthous ulcers, in conjunction with 2 or more systemic manifestations - a common systemic manifestation of the disease being cutaneous lesions, which often present as papules that ulcerate to form ulcerations which exhibit the same pathergy phenomenon as pyoderma gangrenosum and are thus difficult to heal. We present a case of a type 2 diabetic male with previously undiagnosed Behçet's Disease who presented to clinic with an atypical lower extremity wound. Due to the atypical nature of the patient's wound, combined with information from the patient regarding the history of the wound and other illnesses he had, the wound was biopsied and the results from the biopsy combined with clinical suspicion yielded a diagnosis of Behçet's Disease. After understanding the nature of the wound, management of the ulceration was adjusted appropriately so as to properly treat the patient with both local wound care and medical management for the disease. Patient was referred to rheumatology for further workup and long-term management of Behçet's Disease. Correct identification and treatment of the systemic disease, as well as the lower extremity ulcerations, in patients with Behçet's Disease is critical to avoid organ and limb-threatening complications. Had the diagnosis of Behçet's not been made in this case, the patient wound would have been at increased risk of disease-related complications - ranging from non-healing ulceration leading to amputation to renal failure to loss of eyesight.
