Behcet’s Awareness Day is May 20th!
Behcet’s disease (also known as Behçet’s and Behçet’s syndrome) is a rare condition that causes chronic inflammation which manifests as ulcers (commonly referred to as canker sores). These ulcers most often appear in the mouth and on the genitals. Inflammation also commonly affects the eye and skin. Sometimes, this inflammation attacks the joints, and, in rare cases, the digestive system, brain, and/or spinal cord.
JOIN THE WALK!
This year, the American Behcet’s Disease Association’s ‘Walk for Behcet’s Disease’ and Patient Education Program will take place in Orlando, Florida on May 18th and 19th.
