Behcet's Disease Prognosis
Most people with Behcet's disease can expect a favorable Behcet's disease prognosis by controlling their symptoms through:
- Proper medicine
Doctors can use many medicines to relieve pain, treat symptoms, and prevent complications. When treatment is effective, flares usually become less frequent. Many patients eventually enter a period of remission (a disappearance of symptoms). In some people, treatment for Behcet's disease does not relieve symptoms, and gradually, more serious symptoms, such as eye disease, may occur. Serious symptoms of Behcet's disease may appear months, or even, years after the first signs of the disease become apparent.
