Behcet's disease associated with HIV infection [see comments]




 

J Rheumatol. 1991 Sep;18(9):1427-8. Unique Identifier : AIDSLINE

The cooccurrence of Behcet's disease and human immunodeficiency virus infection is described in a 33-year-old man who died. If this is not a chance occurrence, then either the constellation of signs that characterize Behcet's disease may be simulated by complications of HIV infection, or else HIV infection causes, or predisposes to, a Behcet's-like illness.
