Abstract

The medical records were reviewed of 124 patients (108 males, 16 females) with Behget disease attending the King Hussein Medical Center and Prince Rashed Bin Al-Hasan Military Hospital, Jordan, between January 1996 and June 2001. The clinical pattern, manifestations and clinical course in Jordanian patients were compared with those in other countries of the region. There was some variation in the frequency of lesions in the sample compared to these other countries but it was concluded that the “Silk Road Disease” does pass through Jordan without having any specific features.
