Abstract

Objectives. Case reports on monozygotic (MZ) twins with Behcet's syndrome (BS) have been few and we are not aware of formal twin studies. We sought the frequency of MZ and dizygotic (DZ) twin births in BS and compared it to a healthy population sample from the same geography. We also looked for the concordance rate among the MZ and DZ twins.
