A 50-­year-old man ­with ­Behçet’s dis­ease (BD) diag­nosed ten ­years pre­vi­ously, was sub­mitted to emer­gency oper­a­tion of two symp­to­matic ­type IV thor­a­coab­dom­inal ­aortic and ­left ­common ­iliac aneu­rysms ­repair. ­Despite the ­rarity of vas­cular ­lesions in the ­course of BD, the ­uncommon clin­ical sit­u­a­tion of ­double symp­to­matic aneu­rysms was suc­cess­fully ­treated ­with sur­gical man­age­ment ­that ­appears ­more dif­fi­cult ­because of the inflam­ma­tory pro­cess asso­ciated ­with oblit­er­a­tive endo­ar­ter­itis ­involving all per­i­aortic tis­sues.
