The rarer of orogenital ulceration with uveitis and variable dermatologi-cal, musculoskeletal and neuro-. The differential diagnosis of tuberculous ulcer includes traumatic ulcer, syphilitic ulcer, and oral SCC . Syphilitic Ulceration (Chancre). Primary syphilitic ulceration usually occurs as a result of orogenital or oroanal contact with an infectious lesion. It rarely affects the mouth and often remains undiagnosed because of its temporary duration Behçet's syndrome (BS) is a multisystem disease of unknown etiology, characterized by chronic relapsing cardinal symptoms of orogenital ulcers, uveitis, and different skin lesions. Its major pathologic feature is vasculitis Patients presenting with recurrent orogenital ulcers may have complex aphthosis, Behçet's disease, secondary complex aphthosis (e.g. Reiter's syndrome, Crohn's disease, cyclical neutropenia) or non-aphthous disease (including bullous disorders, erythema multiforme, erosive lichen planus) The differential diagnosis of oral ulceration The principal causes of oral ulceration are trauma, recurrent aphthous stomatitis, microbial infections, mucocutaneous disease, systemic disorders, squamous cell carcinoma and drug therapy 1, 2 (see Table 1 and Figures 1-6).

Herpes Simplex Virus. Mandell Gl, Bennett JE, Dolin R, eds. Principles and Practice of Infectious Diseases. 8th ed. Since neither the laboratory data nor the histopathological signs are truly pathognomonic in Behçet's disease, the differential diagnosis depends on a careful evaluation of the medical history and meticulous physical examination to detect concomitant systemic manifestations. Sometimes, some laboratory test may help establish the diagnosis The ulcers are typically very painful and result in dysuria or prevent urination altogether (acute retention of urine) requiring admission to hospital and catheterisation. Local lymph nodes may be enlarged and tender. What is the differential diagnosis of non-sexually acquired genital ulceration The clinical differential diagnosis for dural sinus thrombosis includes cerebrovascular accident, intracranial neoplasm, vascular malformation, and benign intracranial hypertension. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI; fig 1) and MRI venogram 9 or computed tomography of the brain with contrast are valuable in diagnosing dural sinus thrombosis
Genital herpes, syphilis, and chancroid lead the differential diagnosis, but conditions unrelated to STIs should also be considered, such as trauma, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, Beçhet syndrome, Crohn disease, carcinoma, and bacterial infection. In 25% of cases, no etiology is identified In this Review, the authors discuss issues that surround the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of Behçet syndrome. Current approaches to managing patients with disorders of this complex group.

The most common presentation of mouth ulcers is with painful, recurrent aphthous stomatitis, also known as aphthosis, aphthae, aphthous ulcerations, and canker sores. Mouth ulcers Important signs associated with genital ulcers that may assist in the diagnosis of the cause of the genital ulcer may include the presence of tender or non-tender enlarged lymph nodes in the groin area, a painful or non-painful genital ulcer, or the presence of vesicular lesions, which are small, painful, elevated blisters
Recurrent orogenital ulcers were present one year before the onset of extranasal lymphoma of skin. Furthermore, eye involvement of BD was typical posterior uveitis that was unrelated to ENKL because no ocular or periocular mass, which is a frequent ocular manifestation of ENKL, was found (8).

Behçet disease is a disorder characterized by the triad of recurrent orogenital ulcers, ocular inflammatory disease, and cutaneous manifestations. Neurologic involvement has been reported in 5%-30% of patients. VZV must be included in the differential diagnosis Since not all oral sores are benign, a careful differential diagnosis is important. There are many conditions that mimic and some drugs that produce classic aphthous ulcers. Most lesions can be diagnosed based on clinical appearance and history. However, if an oral sore does not heal within a certain time frame, a biopsy may be required Various etiologies must be carefully considered, and important differential diagnoses of orogenital ulceration include immunological, gastrointestinal, dermatological, infectious, hematological and medication-related causes .

These conditions include acute necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis, allergic stomatitis, herpetiform aphthous stomatitis, recurrent HSV infection, erythema multiforme and ulcers due to chemotherapy HIV/AIDS patients often present with orogenital ulcers. In the immunocompromised patient diagnosis of these ulcers pose a challenge, as there is a myriad of etiologies clinical diagnosis of BD was made based on the history of pyo-derma gangrenosum, erythema nodosum, alveolar haemorrhage and recurrent orogenital ulcerations using the International Criteria for BD (table 1). Following the working diagnosis of BD, human lymphocyte antigens B5/B51 were tested and found to be negative. Th Her orogenital ulcerations continue to recur. Human leukocyte antigen testing revealed HLA-B51 and B44 positivity. This is a case of pediatric Behçet disease in the neonatal period.
