Özet

Purpose: To report the conjunctival microvascular abnormalities as the only ocular manifestation of two patients with Behcet's disease. Method: Reporting two patients with Behcet's disease presenting conjunctival vascular lesions associated with subconjunctival hemorrhage. Results: The vascular lesions responded rapidly to treatment with topical steroids. Conclusions: Microvascular involvement in Behcet's disease might also occur at unusual sites such as bulbar conjunctiva.
