Objective: To report a case of Behc?et’s disease whose diagnosis was only confirmed thanks to an oral aphthous lesion biopsy.
Materials and methods: Conventional histopathological analysis of a biopsy of an aphthous oral lesion that had appeared two days previously.
Results: A small vein vasculitis with eosinophil and neutrophil granulocytes was evidenced.
Conclusion: The presence of a small vein vasculitis was here strongly in favour of Behc?et's disease, whereas such a diagnosis was not confirmed according to the International Study Group’s criteria.
