Objective. Changes in microbiota composition affect the aetiology and pathogenesis of chronic diseases, including Behcet's disease (BD). However, no studies have analysed the potential gut microbiota changes among different clinical forms of BD. This study evaluated the intestinal microbiota composition of patients with BD and healthy controls and also compared differences between patients with BD with respect to eye, mucocutaneous, and vascular involvement.
