In brief: Inflammation

The classic three findings are ulcers in the mouth, genital ulcers, and inflammation of the eyes.
The eyes can be inflammed from front to back. The inflammation of the retinal blood vessels is most harmful and can cause permanent vision loss. Behcet's disease should be treated promptly, ideally by a uveitis specialist if you have one in your area.
