In Behçet’s dis­ease, an aneu­rysm is prone to ­progress rap­id­ly to a pseu­do­aneu­rysm. Acute limb ische­mia due to acute throm­bo­sis of a femo­ral pseu­do­aneu­rysm and sub­se­quent Horner’s syn­drome due to ­another sub­cla­vian pseu­do­aneu­rysm are very rare but accept­able com­pli­ca­tions in Behçet’s dis­ease. We ­present a case of Behçet’s dis­ease with mul­ti­ple pseu­do­an­eu­rysms, which also ­showed these other clin­i­cal man­i­fes­ta­tions. Over a short time span, the ­patient rap­id­ly devel­oped left femo­ral and right sub­cla­vian pseu­do­an­eu­rysms, which were suc­cess­ful­ly resect­ed with graft replace­ments.
