Prognosis for Behcet's Disease:
Behcet's disease is a lifelong disorder which proceeds
over a long period of time in a series of remissions (lack of disease
activity) and exacerbations (periods of active disease).

Most people with Behçet's disease can lead normal lives
and control their symptoms with proper medicine, rest, and exercise.
Doctors can use many medicines to relieve pain, treat symptoms, and
prevent complications. When treatment is effective, flares usually
become less frequent after 1 or 2 years. Many patients eventually enter
a period of remission. In some people, however, treatment does not
relieve symptoms, and gradually more serious symptoms such as eye
disease may occur. Serious symptoms may appear months or years after the
first signs of Behçet's disease. (Source: excerpt from Questions and Answers About Behcets Disease: NIAMS)
