A 24 yr old indian male with recurrent genital lesions for almost 2 years now that have been diagnosed as apthous ulcers. Apart from a severe case of cystic acne that is almost familial there is no history of oral ulcers, meningitis, joint pains, eye problems or GIT disturbances other than history of anal fissure. 1 male sibling with oral apthae and similar acneform skin eruptions but no genital lesions. No other positive family history. Investigations showed a negative pathergy, normal complement levels and a negative ANA test. What is the possibility of a diagnosis of Behcet's disease considering that the patient does not have the mandatory diagnositc criteria of oral ulcers?
