Behcet's disease is known as a chronic systemic vasculitic syndrome, the hallmark of which is recurrent oral aphthous; and genital ulcerations and uveitis. Vascular involvement, mainly thrombosis, reportedly affects as many as one-third of patients. Cardiac involvement, however, is very rare. We present in this report a young female patient developing right ventricular thrombus while being treated medically.
