Neuro- behçet disease, mesodiencephalic junction, parenchymal


Behçet's syndrome is named after Turkish dermatologist HulsiBehcet, who, in 1937, described a syndrome of recurrentaphthous ulcers, genital ulcerations, and uveitis leading to blindness.Radiologically, neuro-behçet disease (NBD) usually involves the white matter, brainstem, basal ganglia and thalamus

We report a case of Behcet syndrome  with CNS manifestation with involvement of mesodiencephalic junction the most common neural parenchymaimaging feature described for the disease.
