Özet

Behcet's disease is a chronic multi-system disease presenting with recurrent oral and genital ulceration, and relapsing uveitis. Cardiac involvement is an extremely rare manifestation of this disorder. We report an unusual case of Behcet's disease characterized by a mural cardiac thrombi in the right atrium and right ventricle along with transient protein C and S deficiency.
