Behcet's disease typically comes and goes in unpredictable cycles. Symptoms may become less severe over time.

Though treatment can't cure Behcet's disease, it often can control signs and symptoms and reduce the risk of complications. For instance, untreated uveitis can lead to decreased vision or even blindness. People with eye signs and symptoms of Behcet's disease should be carefully monitored by an eye doctor because treatment can help prevent this complication. Other complications of Behcet's disease depend on the specific set of signs and symptoms you're experiencing.
