Özet

Behcet's disease (BD) was described as a three-symptom complex comprising uveitis, oral aphthae, and genital ulcerations. It is a multisystemic, recurrent, inflammatory disorder and it is of unknown cause. Neuro-Behcet (NB) is present in 5%-7% of BD. Movement disorders have rarely been reported in NB. Here, we report a case of chronic parenchymal NB presenting with chorea.
