Behçet’s disease (BD) is a chronic inflammatory disease with multisystem involvement, first described by Hulusi Behçet in 1937. Recurrent mouth and genital area ulcers, skin findings and uveitis are characteristic features. BD is most commonly seen in the Far East, the Middle East and Mediterranean countries in all ethnic groups, and the frequency in our country has been reported to be 110-420/100.000. Since BD is a multisystemic disease, anesthetic drug administration and management are challenging in patients with BD. We aimed to present a 26-year-old pregnant patient with BD undergoing cesarean section with spinal anesthesia and evaluate the anesthetic techniques in the light of the current literature.
