We ­report the devel­op­ment of two anas­to­motic pseu­do­an­eu­rysms in a ­patient ­with ­Behçet’s dis­ease ­eighteen ­months ­after abdom­inal ­aortic aneu­rysm ­repair. ­Major asymp­to­matic vas­cular com­pli­ca­tions ­should be sus­pected in ­patients ­with ­Behçet’s dis­ease ­with a his­tory of vas­cular sur­gery and ­treated expe­diently due to the ­risk of rup­ture. Mag­netic res­o­nance angio­graphy, con­trast-­enhanced com­puted tomog­raphy or ultra­sound scan­ning ­should be per­formed at ­least every 6 months ­after vas­cular sur­gery.
