SILVA JUNIOR, Otacílio Figueiredo da et al. Behçet's disease presenting with superior vena cava thrombosis. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2006, vol.5, n.1, pp.74-77. ISSN 1677-5449.

Venous thrombosis is the main hazard to the vascular system in Behçet's disease. It is a frequent complication throughout the clinical evolution of this illness, which is more associated with the male gender. The authors report the case of a female patient with disease onset 3 years ago, showing oral and genital ulcers presenting with recurring episodes of venous thrombosis. The first one was a deep venous thrombosis in the right leg; the second was in the left internal jugular vein; and finally a superior vena cava thrombosis.

Keywords : Behçet's disease; venous thrombosis; superior vena cava syndrome.
