ABSTRACT: Behcet's disease is a multisystemic inflammatory disease with various manifestations at the skin level, especially in the form of acne-like lesions or erythema nodosum. Susceptibility to this disease is strongly linked to the presence of the HLA_B51 allele, although certain environmental factors such as infectious agents have also been implicated in its pathogenesis. We present the case of a patient with Behcet's disease who developed a severe flare characterized by lesions similar to those seen in Sweet's syndrome. Histologically we observed granulomatous vasculitis.
