I was at the hospital last week and a new registrar was sitting in on the consultation.
He asked what sort of auto-immune disease I had. We all looked blank and said Behcets and then the penny dropped and the other doctor said I had a neutrophilic auto-immune disease.
Apparently my white cells (neutrophils) are very raised from time to time.
I didn't realise there were different kinds of auto-immune diseases.
Do all BD sufferers have raised white cells (neutrophils)? Any comments?
