Behcet's disease (BD) is a chronic multisystem disorder characterized by a triad of oral ulcers, genital ulcers, and uveitis. Association between BD and other autoimmune disorders is not well documented. BD with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura has rarely been reported. Here, we present the case of a 16-year-old female presenting with recurrent oral and genital ulcers with a low platelet count diagnosed as BD with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura based on clinical and laboratory findings. The patient showed an excellent response to systemic corticosteroids.
