Abstract

Objectives: Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is an uncommon manifestation of Behcet's disease (BD) characterized by hepatic venous outflow obstruction either within the liver or in the inferior vena cava (IVC). Clinical and laboratory findings, as well as treatment options and prognosis of four BD patients with BCS, were analyzed retrospectively.
