Abstract´╝Ü Introduction::Beh?et disease is a chronic multisystem vasculitis disease, however generalized polymorphous cutaneous lesions are uncommon.Case report::A 69-year-old man presented with a seven-year history of recurrent generalized polymorphous mucocutaneous lesions (erythematous papules, nodules, ulcers, and necrosis) over his entire body, and the lesions had been painful for the past three years. Based on the past medical history, clinical presentation, histological examination excluded other diseases, and the 2014-amended International Criteria for Behget disease, the patient had a score of 6 points and was diagnosed as Beh?et disease.Discussion::The common clinical feature in patients with Beh?et syndrome is the presence of recurrent and usually painful mucocutaneous ulcers. Other clinical manifestations of this disorder are more variable among different patients. A diagnosis of generalized polymorphous cutaneous lesions should remain on the list of differential diagnosis of Beh?et disease after excluding other diseases.Conclusion::The mucocutaneous lesions of Beh?et disease are often preceded by other manifestations, and timely diagnosis may benefit early treatment and prognosis.
