Abstract: Tuberculosis (TB) has rarely been reported in the context of Behçet disease. We present two cases of recurrent orogenital ulceration predating the onset of TB. No relapses of orogenital symptoms have occurred after successful TB chemotherapy.

In Brief

Two cases are presented that report no relapses of orogenital symptoms after successful TB chemotherapy.
