Successful treatment of refractory Behçet’s myositis with Tumor Necrosis Factor inhibitor

human immunodeficiency virus status were negative, while anti-HBc and anti-HCV antibodies were positive. Computer tomography (CT) of abdomen and pelvis showed a large sigmoid diverticulum. Gynecological examination found multiple vaginal ulcers that were treated as herpes infection. She defaulted subsequent follow-up. Starting from March 2015, her ankle and foot pain relapsed. She was treated by her private rheumatologist as seronegative rheumatoid arthritis (RA), with prednisolone, methotrexate and leflunomide, but response was suboptimal. Five months later, she
