Diagnosis of Behcet's Disease

There are no specific tests to confirm a diagnosis of Behcet's Disease. The diagnosis is based on clinical criteria. It may take several months or years for all the common symptoms of the disease to appear, often making it difficult to obtain a definitive diagnosis. The diagnosis is based on the occurrence of signs and symptoms of the disease and on positive clinical criteria referred to as the International Clinical Criteria for Behcet's Disease.
