In the U.S. and other Western countries, Behcet's Disease is more common in women than men. It's only in the Middle East & Asian regions where men predominate.

Behcet's can cause many symptoms not mentioned here, and some patients never have the eye or brain involvement described. Children can also have Behcet's, although it's uncommon before the teenage years.

Most common symptoms include recurrent oral and genital ulcers, eye inflammation, skin lesions, arthritis, GI problems, headaches, fatigue, and CNS/brain involvement similar to MS.
