USAGE OF ILOPROST IN VASCULO-BEHCET'S DISEASE Case Report and Literature Review

Murat Ozeren, Pelin Durmazlar, and Ertan Yucel

Background: Vasculo-Behcet's disease is a rare but serious form of the disease and carries a poor prognosis. Here we are presenting first time successful results of iloprost in a VBD to prevent the patient from the catastrophic results of surgery. Patient and method: A 34 year old male patient with arterial involvement due to Vasculo-Behcet's disease was hospitalized. Iloprost treatment was planned to the patient because of his previous vascular operations and high recurrence rate of surgery in Behcet?s disease. Conclusion: Iloprost is a safe and promising drug for the treatment of Vasculo-Behcet's disease with arterial involvement and also we are recommending that iloprost can be used as an alternative first line medical treatment.
