Contribution of Hla-B51 in the susceptibility and specific clinical features of Behcets disease in Tunisian patients

It seems to be associated with a subgroup of BD patients characterized by a higher frequency of ocular involvement and PPT, but a lower frequency of arterial aneurysm and neurological involvement, and a less severe disease course.
