Behçet’s disease shows systemic involvement, including mucocutaneus, ophthalmical, neurological, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, urogenital, mucoskeletal, and cardiovascular disorders. Aneurysmal changes develop in 65% of patients with arterial involvement and are associated with a poor prognosis. Although many attempts have been made to surgically manage these serious arterial lesions, several reports have shown a high recurrence rate and operation-related complications. Stent-graft placement has been indicated for the treatment of pseudoaneurysms and aneurysms in patients with a high surgical risk, including those with Behçet’s disease. We herein describe an abdominal aortic pseudoaneurysm in a patient with Behçet’s disease that was successfully treated with stent-graft insertion without an endoleak after 36 months of follow-up.
