Behçet’s disease (BD) is a chronic systemic inflammatory disorder affecting venules. A 25-year-old male was referred to the Ophthalmology clinic with two-week history of loss of vision in both eyes. On examination there were oral and genital ulcers along with fundus findings. Diagnosis of Behcet’s disease was made following investigations. He was advised vitreoretinal surgery, topical steroids, systemic corticosteroids and cyclophosphamide. This case report suggests that high index of suspicion helps timely diagnosis and early treatment can prevent blindness.
