Behcet’s disease is a chronic vasculitis of unknown etiopathogenesis. Serum vitamin D levels have been reported to be associated with a variety of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases one of which is Behcet’s disease. The previous studies about vitamin D in Behcet’s disease seem to be focused on 4 main categories; the studies evaluating serum vitamin D levels between patients with Behcet’s disease and controls, the studies evaluating serum vitamin D in the susceptibility and pathogenesis of Behcet’s disease, the studies evaluating serum vitamin D in clinical involvements and activity of Behcet’s disease, and the studies evaluating the effect of serum vitamin D replacement in Behcet’s disease. The aim of this manuscript was to evaluate the results of the studies on serum vitamin D in Behcet’s disease and review the literature.
