Behcet's Disease

Get diagnosed, get treated, get your life back!

Behcet's Disease, also known as Behcet's syndrome, is a rare, chronic, autoimmune, autoinflammatory disorder of unknown origin. The ABDA supports, educates and empowers the Behcet's community, while continuously advocating for better research, diagnostics, treatment and a cure.

"After many years of illness, my physician suspected a diagnosis of Behcet's Disease. Getting in touch with the American Behcet's Disease Association allowed me to connect with other patients and physicians with ample knowledge of BD and gave me hope. I'm no longer alone!" M. Kelly
