Abstract
Behçet's disease(BD) is a multi-systemic vasculitis with unknown etiology and chronic inflamation. Generally it is seen in Mediterrian, Middle East and Asian countries. It was firstly described by Hulusi Behçet, a Turk dermatologist, in 1937. Although the multisystem involvement can be seen in BD , the involvements of skin and oral mucosa are seen mostly. The ratio of pulmonary involvement is %1-18 in BD. The most common pathological finding in pulmonary involvement is pulmonary artery aneursym with or without thrombosis formation, but the thrombus in pulmonary artery without aneursym is a very rare clinical manifestation in BD . So that we want to report a case of BD with thrombosis in pulmonary artery without aneursym.

Key words: Behçet\'s Disease;Thrombosis;Pulmonary Artery Aneursym
