- Behcet's syndrome characterized by recurrent oral and genital ulcerations and occular inflammation has been recognized as a multisystemic disease with numerous manifestations including gastrointestinal tract.
But the cases associated with esophageal ulceration are reported rarely untill now. Moreover no
case was reported in Korea.
Here we report 3 cases of Behcet's syndrome with esophageal ulceration with the review of literature.
The esophageal ulceration in Behcet's syndrome occurs in the mid to distal esophagus with usually abrupt onset and has a tendency of recurrence.
Endoscopic, radiologic and histologic findings of esophageal ulceration in Behcet's syndrome are not distinguishible from regurgitant ulceration, Barrett's ulcer, Crohn’s disease and drug-induced ulcer. The cause of esophageal ulceration is to be based on patient's history.
