It is a triple-symptom complex of Recurrent Oral Aphthous Ulcers, Genital ulcers, and Uveitis. As a systemic disease, it can also involve visceral organs such as the gastrointestinal tract, pulmonary, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and neurological systems. This syndrome can be fatal due to ruptured vascular aneurysms or severe neurological complications. It happens to 1 in a million people.
It is considered more prevalent in the areas surrounding the old silk trading routes in the Middle East and in Central Asia. Thus, it is also called as Silk Road Disease 
It can be fatal due to ruptured vascular aneurysms or severe neurological complications.
Though cases are increasingly diagnosed nowadays all around the world due to more awareness and investigational advancement. Patients suffer a great deal with not much of respite with various treatment except for Steroids in modern medicine.
Homoeopathy comes here as a rescue and miraculous recovery has been achieved when even steroids were not providing any relief. Homoeopathy as a great science, has been dealing with the patients on the holistic manner as Dr. Hahnemann had emphasised to treat the man and not the sickness, which enables to treat patients even of rare diseases with Mental, Physical and Individualistic approach as guideline to find the simillimum and treat constitutionally.
Homoeopathy is a vast ocean of Therapeutics and Homoeopaths have been able to utilize  the uniqueness with goodness of the science based on various approaches.
Prof. Dr. A. K. Gupta mentioned about the Symptoms as Painful Oral Ulcers , Painful Genital Ulcers usually develop around the Anus, Vulva, or Scrotum and cause scarring in 75% of the patients. Additionally, patients may present with Erythema nodosum, cutaneous pustular Vasculitis.
Inflammatory Eye disease can develop early in the disease course and lead to permanent vision loss in 20% of cases. Ocular involvement can be in the form of Posterior Uveitis, Anterior Uveitis, or Retinal Vasculitis. 
Dr. Gupta who is an Internationally renowned Homoeopathic consultant presented few cases of this rare disease called Behcet’s, where his Homoeopathic treatment has benefitted the patients.
