She answers frequently-asked questions about BD, which can cause inflammation of the blood vessels anywhere in the body; distinguishes it from other multi-system diseases (e.g. lupus, inflammatory bowel disease); and discusses its ocular and neurological symptoms, possible genetic component, pediatric occurrence, and treatment. Recent research results on pregnancy and BD are included, as well as a 1989 journal article on the topic. The book contains suggested readings on alternative treatments, information on applying for Social Security disability benefits (in the US and UK), and BD organizations. Annotation c.
