Answer

Specific diagnostic tests for Behçet disease are lacking. Suggestive features of the disease can be obtained from laboratory evaluations, imaging studies, and histopathologic evaluation in the right clinical context. However, development of those features may take several months to years, leaving the diagnosis of Behçet disease rather suggestive in many cases.
