Behcet’s disease is a multisystem vasculitis which can be associated with cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) leading to increased intracranial tension and papilloedema. We report a case of a 17-year-old boy who presented to us with inward deviation of right eye with bilateral disc oedema and on further investigations was found to be Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) B5 positive, along with CVT on magnetic resonance venography which further led us to the diagnosis of non-parenchymal neuro-Behcet’s.
