Jihad Raoui | Elizabeth O. Ugoani | Bouthayna Mesmoudi | Cherti Mohamed

Abstract: Behcet syndrome is a multisystemic, chronic, inflammatory disorder of unknown cause. It is characterized by recurrent buccal aphthosis, genital ulcers, and uveitis with hypopyon. The mean age at which it occurs is 20 to 30 years; men are 2 to 5 times more often affected than women. Additional manifestations in other locations (skin, joints, gastrointestinal tract, genitourinary tract, central nervous system, cardiovascular system, and lungs) can appear and can influence the clinical course and prognosis. Although cardiac involvement during Behcet syndrome is uncommon and intracardiac thrombosis is exceptional. In this unusual case a young man had symptoms that primarily related to recurrent right ventricular thrombi and pulmonary thromboemboli.

Keywords: Behcet's disease, right ventricular thrombi, pulmonary thromboemboli
