Objectives. Oligoclonal bands (OCB) of immunoglobulins (IgG) in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) provides an evidence for the humoral response and have been screened in the CSF and serum of patients revealing 5 different patterns. In this study, patients with Behcet's disease (BD) are screened in a larger sample to potentially provide information about the possible role of CSF oligoclonal immunoglobulins in the diagnosis of this disease.
