CAMARGO, Paula Angeleli Bueno de et al. Endovascular repair of a thoracoabdominal pseudoaneurysm in a patient with Behçet’s disease. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2015, vol.14, n.4, pp.351-355. ISSN 1677-5449.

Behçet’s disease is an inflammatory disease characterized by recurrent oral and genital ulcers, uveitis and skin lesions. Arterial involvement is rare, but when present aneurysmal degeneration is more common than occlusive disease. This report describes the clinical case of a female patient who had been receiving treatment for Behçet’s disease for twenty years before presenting with abdominal pain that progressed for 2 months before suddenly worsening significantly. A CT scan revealed a thoracoabdominal pseudoaneurysm. She was successfully treated with endovascular repair.

Keywords : Behçet’s disease; aortic aneurysm; dissecting aneurysm; endovascular procedures.
