Abstract:

Behçet’s disease (BD) is considered a chronic relapsing multisystem inflammatory disorder. It has a worldwide distribution, but it is more prevalent in Mediterranean countries. Although its etiopathogenesis remains elusive, the most accepted hypothesis is that the excessive inflammatory response is triggered by an infectious agent in a genetically susceptible host. The presence of an increased proportion of certain Bacterial strains in the oral flora and the isolation of a virus in certain BD lesions have led to search on the role of viruses and bacteria in the aetiopathogenesis of BD. This review aims to discuss the role of microorganisms in the development of BD.


Keywords: Behçet’s disease, Bacteria; Virus, Heat shock proteins.
