Introduction: Behcet's Disease, described in 1937 by Hulusi Behcet, is characterized by oral and genital ulcers, uveitis, arthritis, and involvement of the gastrointestinal tract, central nervous system, and blood vessels, with an unknown aetiology. Although there are many reports about a high neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio in Behcet's disease; to our knowledge, there is no research in the literature (PubMed database) that evaluates both neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio and platelet/lymphocyte ratio for the patients with thrombosis in Behcet's disease.
