Answer

Behçet syndrome

Symptoms form the major criteria for diagnosis of this disorder (see Behcet Disease). Findings for the major criteria include recurrent oral ulcerations appearing in young adults in their 20s and 30s with uveitis and genital ulcerations. Organs involved include the eyes, brain, lungs, GI tract, and kidneys. Aphthae and genital ulcerations are painful erosions. Uveitis causes pain, vision problems, and lacrimation, as well as other symptoms.
