What is the outlook for Behçet’s syndrome?

Although Behçet's syndrome is a long-term problem, it doesn't usually affect how long you live. The condition tends to go through phases when sometimes it's better than others.

Treatment may prevent new symptoms from appearing and control the existing ones. Because of the many possible problems that can occur, people with Behçet's syndrome should see a rheumatologist or another doctor with an interest in the condition.
