Bottom Line: Behçet's disease (BD) is a systemic disorder of unknown process resulting from systemic vasculitis.The pulmonary involvements in BD are uncommon.Furthermore, in the female, involvement of the pulmonary artery is quite rare.

ABSTRACT
Behçet's disease (BD) is a systemic disorder of unknown process resulting from systemic vasculitis. The pulmonary involvements in BD are uncommon. Furthermore, in the female, involvement of the pulmonary artery is quite rare. There were a few cases of female patients with BD with pulmonary artery aneurysm confirmed by pulmonary artery angiogram. In this article, we report a case of BD, combined with pulmonary artery aneurysm, confirmed by pulmonary angiogram and treated by surgery in a Korean female patient.

f4-kjim-9-1-47-9: The digital subtraction pulmonary angiogram reveals dilated left inferior pulmonary artery (indicated by arrow-heads) proximal to the obstructed pulmonary artery and well-preserved left upper lung (indicated by arrows).

Mentions: The perfusion scan showed lobar perfusion defect of left lower lobe and focal segmental perfusion defect of right lower lobe. The ventilation scan showed round single defect in left hilar area. The computerized tomogram of thorax revealed 5×5cm-sized, round, mass with surrounding low density, suggesting PAA with thrombosis in left lung (Fig. 3). Ascending venogram of lower leg showed diffuse obstruction of right femoral vein. The digital subtraction pulmonary angiogram revealed huge dilatation of left main pulmonary artery, proximal to the obstructed pulmonary artery (Fig. 4).
