Core Tip This study reports the incidence and clinical features of gastrointestinal (GI) involvement in a total of 168 consecutive Chinese patients with Behcet’s disease (BD), of whom upper and lower GI endoscopies were performed in 148 patients. Controls were enrolled for comparison. Fifty-two (35.1%) patients had GI lesions. After a mean follow-up of 10 mo, ileocecal ulcers had been confirmed in 20 patients, but no ileocecal ulceration was found in controls. Four patients had esophageal ulcers in the BD group but no case in controls. The other endoscopic findings were similar between the two groups.
