Patients with Behçet’s disease are at risk for iatrogenic aneurysms after interventions. Presently described is the case of a 55-year-old male with multiple pseudoaneurysms occurring in the late period after a coronary angiography procedure performed via the radial artery. There was no previous diagnosis of vasculitis. Behçet’s disease was revealed to be the underlying pathology.

Keywords: Behcet’s disease, coronary angiography; iatrogenic; pseudoaneurysm; radial artery.
