BELCZAK, Sergio Quilici et al. Endovascular treatment of aortic aneurysms in patients with Behcet's disease: report of two cases. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2010, vol.9, n.2, pp.89-94. ISSN 1677-5449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-54492010000200014.

Behcet's disease, a systemic vasculitis of unknown etiology, may be the cause of aortic aneurysmal diseases in some patients. We report our experience with two Behcet's disease patients who presented with aortic aneurysms and were submitted to endovascular therapy, and describe their respective follow-ups. Current pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment approaches were reviewed. Our experience suggests that the endovascular approach, combined with adequate immunosuppressive treatment, is an excellent therapeutic option for some patients with Behcet's disease suffering from aneurysms.

Palavras-chave : Behcet's disease; aortic aneurysm; endovascular treatment.
