The Relationship between Serum IL-17 and IL-23 levels, and other Disease Activity Parameters in Patients with Behçet’s Disease

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.248
Synopsis: 
Behçet's disease, a vasculitic syndrome with unknown aetiopathogenesis including genetic factors, infections, cytokines. IL17 and IL 23, play important roles in inflammatory diseases such as psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel diseases, asthma, bacterial, fungal infections, maybe Behçet's.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To investigate the relationship between both disease activity and the involvement of Behçet’s disease (BD), and serum levels of interleukin (IL)-17 and IL-23.

Ultrasonographic Measurement of the Femoral Cartilage Thickness in Patients with Behçet’s Disease

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.337
Pages: 
728–31
Synopsis: 
In this study, the femoral cartilage thickness of patients with Behçet’s disease (BD) was evaluated and it was found that the cartilage was thinner in patients with BD and that arthritis seems to be associated with this decrease.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To evaluate femoral cartilage thickness in patients with Behçet’s disease (BD) by using ultrasonography.

Mediterranean Fever Gene Mutations in Greek Patients with Behcet’s Disease

Issue: 
Pages: 
28–31
Synopsis: 
Pyrin gene mutations in Greek patients with Behçet’s disease are not more common than the general population.

 

ABSTRACT

Objective: It is known that clinical similarities between Behcet’s disease and Familial Mediterranean Fever have led to the hypothesis of a common pathogenesis. Familial Mediterranean Fever is caused by MEFV gene mutations coding for pyrin. Therefore, we examined whether these pyrin mutations are also associated with Behcet’s disease.

Diagnosis of Behçet’s Disease in a Non-endemic Region The Utility of the Urate Skin Test

Issue: 
Pages: 
157–60
Synopsis: 
The urate skin test may add a level of diagnostic specificity to Behçet’s Disease

 

ABSTRACT

Sporadic cases of Behçet’s disease in non-endemic regions pose a diagnostic challenge and may be confused with other more common chronic, relapsing multisystem disorders. The urate skin test, an exaggerated inflammatory reaction to intradermally injected monosodium urate crystals, may add a level of diagnostic specificity to a disease which otherwise lacks pathognomonic clinical features.
