Behcet's disease is a rare, vascular autoinflammatory illness that is little understood outside of its "Silk Road" origins (countries of the Far East, Middle East and Mediterranean basin). Using a question-and-answer format - along with illustrations and photographs - this book gives easy-to-understand explanations of common patient concerns. Detailed information is provided on causes, symptoms, complications, and treatments for Behcet's disease. Physicians in training and/or new to the field of Behcet's will find that included material is referenced and evidence-based, and that the book has been reviewed in advance of publication by clinicians noted in the research and treatment of Behcet's. This book includes numerous in-text Web links to relevant information at the National Institutes of Health and other online sources. The companion disc includes videos, resources, and illustrations to help you better understand all of the material from the book, as well as links to international Behcet's patient organizations and to free public-access medical journal articles about Behcet's.
It includes information on Behcet's disease in the United States and Western European countries - areas not often covered in depth in other publications. It provides descriptions of diagnostic features of Behcet's disease. It provides information on anti-TNF (and other) medications currently in use and some orphan drug treatments under development. It includes a companion disc with videos, figures, photographs, and web links to references in the text and other sources of information.
