Pictures worth a thousand words May 6, 2005
This book has the best collection of Behcet's-related pictures (skin lesions, etc) that you'll find in one place. If you've wondered what a pathergy reaction looks like, for example, or erythema nodosum, this book is an excellent resource. Warning -- if you're a BD patient AND a parent (and you can afford this book in the first place), it's not something to leave lying around the house for your kids to find: some pictures are horrific and might even give *adults* nightmares. If you're a doctor, this book will give you a basic overview of Behcet's -- but there's more detailed info on clinical research and outcomes in the "Contemporary Synopsis on Behcet's" (for info up to 1989) and the "Essential Guide to Behcet's" (for info up till 2002).
If you have Behcet's Disease, take this book to your doctor! Mar 24, 2004
This book is aimed at physicians treating people with Behcet's Disease, a rare autoimmune vasculitis. I think its best features are the many pages of close-up color photos of what Behcet's Disease can do to your body and skin. Take this book to your doctor(s) if a diagnosis of Behcet's Disease is being considered! It's expensive, but you simply can't get this type of resource elsewhere.
