Simple answer, No! but can be managed. Behcet's an autoimmune disorder causing blood vessel inflammation of many organs: skin, eyes, mouth, digestive tract, Can wax and wane. Local organ management like Eye drops for eye inflammation, or steroid cream for skin; and Colchicine or immunosurpressant meds if over whelming the body systems.

In brief: No
It's good that you were diagnosed; it's often missed and the consequences of this oversight can be fatal.
Behcet's is a lifelong management problem, though it may remit. There are a variety of new medications; if i had this, i would be interested in a trial of thalidomide and/or an anti-tnf agent in addition to Prednisone for flareups. Good luck.
