She had a history of recurrent oral aphthous-like ulcers for 2 years and also had abdominal pain for 2 months. Colonoscopy revealed multiple aphthous ulcers on intestine. Diagnosis of lobular panniculitis was confirmed by histopathological finding of the skin biopsy and she was diagnosed as Behcet’s disease. Eruptions due to mesotherapy accepted as hypersensitivity reaction. Before employing this technique, patients should be carefully examined for Behcet’s pathognomonic clinical findings.
