Behcet's Disease is a chronic rheumatic illness, initiated through
the bodies immune system being over-reactive, and producing unpredictable
episodes of inflammation which affect mostly the small blood vessels.
Symptoms may occur wherever there is a blood supply. Most can be
suppressed by the right and relevant treatment. To date the cause
is still unknown. It is not known if the disease is hereditary,
but this is suspected (some families do have the disease in different
generations). It is not thought to be an infection.
