Vascular lesions of the Behçet's Disease are known as Angio-Behçet Syndrome. Aneurysm formation is an important component of this syndrome. Seven such cases are presented and surgical intervention described. Two operated patients needed further intervention. We conclude that all patients with Behçet's Disease should be searched for arterial aneurysms and especially young patients with aneurysmatic formations should be investigated for Behçet's Disease and also patients with Behçet's Disease are not good candidates for surgery.
