The Prevalence of Behçet’s Syndrome and Its Neurological Complications in Hertfordshire, U.K.
Behçet’s syndrome is uncommon in Hertfordshire and the prevalence is less than that in areas of the Silk Route but not as low as was previously thought. Since this county is typical of other UK counties, it is possible to surmise that the data reflect a national prevalence in the UK of some 1500 patients with the systemic manifestations of the disease and some 225 with neurological complications.
