Behçet's disease is an uncommon multisystem inflammatory disease characterized by oral and genital ulcers, skin lesions, and inflammation of the eyes. We reported the case of a young man with Behçet's syndrome who presented with severe aortic regurgitation that mimicked infectious endocarditis and required reoperation.

Key words: Behçet's disease; Aortic regurgitation; Reoperation
