Answer

Renal manifestations may be underreported. One study found that 1-29% of patients with Behçet disease developed such manifestations. [36]

Associated amyloidosis may develop.

The first presentation is often nephritic-range proteinuria found incidentally. Crescenteric and proliferative glomerulonephritis, as well as IgA nephritis, have also been reported in some cases. [36, 37, 38]
