Variable: Behcet's disease is one of a group of diseases that are referred to as autoimmune disorders. For unknown reasons the body's immune system begins to damage its own organs. Although many organs may be affected behcet's commonly results in mouth or genital sores, eye inflammation, and skin lesions. It can vary in severity and therefore treatment along with careful monitoring is recommended.
Dr. Jack Mutnick

Behcet's: Behcet's disease may come and go on its own in periods of flares and remissions. Your doctor works to control any signs and symptoms you experience during flares with medications such as: topical agents to oral steroids to immunosuppressants to interferon. What is the outcome of life? Death....Doesn't mean we stop trying to treat an illness.
