BEHCET’S is a rare immune-mediated small vessel systemic vasculitis that often presents with Oral or Mouth Ulceration and  Ocular problems. It is a triple-symptom complex of recurrent Oral Aphthous Ulcers, Genital ulcers, and uveitis. As a systemic disease, it can also involve visceral organs such as the gastrointestinal tract, pulmonary, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and neurological systems. This syndrome can be fatal due to ruptured vascular aneurysms or severe neurological complications. It happens to 1 in a million people.

It is considered more prevalent in the areas surrounding the old silk trading routes in the Middle East and in Central Asia. Thus, it is also called as Silk Road Disease

It can be fatal due to ruptured vascular aneurysms or severe neurological complications.

Though cases are increasingly diagnosed now a days all around the world due to more awareness and investigational advancement.

Patients suffer a great deal with not much of respite with various treatment except for Steroids in modern medicine.

Homoeopathy comes here as a rescue and miraculous recovery has been achieved when even steroids were not providing any relief.

Homoeopathy as great science has been dealing with the patients on the holistic manner as Dr. Hahnemann, as emphasised to treat the man and not the sickness, which enables to treat patients even of rare diseases with Mental, Physical and Individualistic approach as guideline to find the simillimum and treat constitutionally.

Homeopathy is a vast ocean of Therapeutics and Homeopaths have been able  utilize  the uniqueness with goodness of the science based on various approaches.

Prof. Dr.A.K.Gupta mentioned about the Symptoms as  Painful Oral Ulcers , Painful Genital Ulcers usually develop around the Anus, Vulva, or Scrotum and cause scarring in 75% of the patients. Additionally, patients may present with Erythema nodosum, cutaneous pustular Vasculitis.

Inflammatory Eye disease can develop early in the disease course and lead to permanent vision loss in 20% of cases. Ocular involvement can be in the form of Posterior Uveitis,  Anterior Uveitis, or Retinal Vasculitis.

Dr. Gupta who is an Internationally renown Homoeopathic consultant presented few cases of this rare disease called Behcet’s , where his Homoeopathic treatment has benefitted the patients. Among many he narrated the case of a patient from America who had been suffering from this disease for over 40 years and was suffering badly. Through the Online and skype only dr.gupta treated the patient, who is absolutely fine and has testified the efficacy and almost cured siutation with the Hooeopathic treatment given by Dr.A.K.Gupta.

Doctors present in the conference appreciated the work of Dr. A.K.Gupta where he was able to provide immediate relief to his patients even in very Acute and severe conditions of the patient, contrary to the common notions that Homoeopathy may not be very effective in Acute and severe conditions of the patient.

He said that patients may also show other symptoms like

  • Bowels – Abdominal pain, Nausea, and Diarrhoea with or without blood; abdominal tenderness, bloating, and generic abdominal discomfort.
  • Lungs –  Hemoptysis, Pleuritis, Cough, or Fever, and in severe cases can be life-threatening if the outlet pulmonary artery develops an aneurysm which ruptures causing severe vascular collapse and death from bleeding in the lungs. Nodules, consolidations, cavities and ground glass lesions are common.
  • Musculo-skeletal system – Non-Erosive Poly or Oligoarthritis primarily of the large joints of the lower extremities.
  • Neurological System – occurs as a chronic Meningo-Encephalitis. Lesions tend to occur in the brainstem, the basal ganglia and deep hemispheric white matter.
  • Cardiac –  Pericarditis, Chronic aortic regurgitation due to aortic root disease

Finally Dr A.K.Gupta concluded by saying that Homoeopathy is equally Effective in treatment  of Rare diseases and not limited to routine common diseases only.

  • It has proven that Acute episodes of the recurrent problems are also being treated well with homoeopathy and gradually the tendencies taken care of by improving the overall vitality of the patient.
  • Importance of General symptoms in deep Pathological cases. Need for change of remedy as and when required with change of symptoms in Acute stages.

Whatever the name and whatever the severity of the disease, Symptom similarity is the sole basis of prescription said Dr.A.K.Gupta.
