Behcet’s Syndrome - Diagnosis

​The symptoms of Behcet’s Syndrome can mimic many other diseases and therefore these conditions need to be excluded before a diagnosis of Behcet’s Syndrome can be made. There is no specific blood test that can diagnose Behcet’s Syndrome. Hence the diagnosis is based on a set of symptoms and signs, including recurrent mouth ulcers at least three times a year, in addition to two of the following:

  • Eye problems – as confirmed by an eye specialist
  • Skin rashes
  • Genital ulcers
  • Positive pathergy test, which is a test to indicate whether the immune system is over-reacting to a minor injury.
