To demonstrate the relationship between the Behçet Disease that has a common trend of being defined as an autoimmune multisystem disease and the level of serum prolactin, an immunstimulant hormon of adenohypophysis and to check the literature and including our results among them, we have looked the prolactin levels of patients who are active in dermatological diagnosis and do not take any cure for the disease and we have searched whether there is relationship between the disease and serum prolactin levels
MATERIAL AND METHODS: 43 patients were taken for the study.21 female and 22 male.20 healthy people similar in age and sex were used in the control group. Patients in Behçet group were in the active period of their illnesses in terms of oral apthe , genital apthe , erythema nodosum and patergy(+). In addition, artralgia accompanied the chart in 20 patients.
RESULTS: Male prolactin average in Behçet group was 11.63 and in control group it was 10.19. There was not a significant prolactin level difference between the two groups (t=1.272, p=0.264.). Female prolactin average in Behçet group was 9.84 and it was 7.21 in Control group.The difference was not meaningful in terms of statistical evaluation.
