Synopsis: 
This study evaluated the clinical spectrum of Behçet’s disease in both pediatric and adult patients and aimed to present the risk factors for severe organ involvements. The clinical features of children were found similar to the adults. While pathergy positivity was evaluated as a good prognostic factor, male gender and ocular involvement was associated with poor prognosis.
