We studied the pathologic findings of 10 resected specimens from the 9 patients who underwent repeated intestinal resections owing to recurrent intestinal Behçet's disease and compared the pathologic features with the findings of the primary lesions and another 13 resected specimens with the disease without recurrence. The repeated resection of intestinal Behçet's disease was a frequent event (9/22, 41%), and the mean period between operations was 2.6 years. None of the clinical features were significantly related to recurrence. All the lesions included the anastomosis area. The pathologic characteristics of recurrent intestinal Behçet's disease are deep ulcer (100%), transmural fibroinflammatory reaction (100%), and vasculitis (60%). There were no pathologic differences between the primary and recurrent lesions.
