Behçet’s disease, an inflammatory condition, can involve various systems. The disease usually manifests with dermatologic and ocular signs but can also cause serious symptoms due to pulmonary or neurologic involvement. Although the onset may occur at any age, it typically emerges in the second to fourth decades of life. As in the case presented here, Behçet’s disease can manifest with the central nervous system involvement early in life and pulmonary involvement in adulthood.
