Neuro-Behçet's disease (NBD) is a serious manifestation of Behçet's disease (BD) and can affect either the central or peripheral nervous systems, or both. It occurs in 10-50% of patients with BD. We report on a patient with an unusual intraparenchymal lesion, initially thought to be a brain tumour. Histological examination revealed vasculitis consistent with BD. Clinicians should include NBD as a differential diagnosis when considering an isolated inflammatory intracranial lesion.
