Abstract
Behcet disease is a multisystemic disorder characterized by a chronic relapsing triple symptom complex of recurrent oral ulceration, genital ulceration, and ocular inflammation. The onset of Behcet disease is rare in old age as is whole colon involvement. We recently saw a 78-year-old female patient examined to have intestinal Behcet disease with diffuse colon ulcers. She was admitted due to multiple oral ulcers, genital ulcers, low abdominal pain, and hematochezia. Colonoscopy showed multiple well-demarcated, large, deep, bleeding ulcers from the cecum into the descending colon. The patient was diagnosed with Behcet disease and treated with steroid, colchicine, and mesalazine. This paper describes a case of Behcet disease with unusual intestinal distribution.
Key Words: Behcet disease, Old age, Colon
