Purpose: To evaluate golimumab (GOL) efficacy in the management of Behçet’s disease (BD)-related uveitis. Methods: We retrospectively collected data from 5 patients (8 eyes) with at least two recent relapses of uveitis, treated with GOL at the standard dose of 50 mg every 4 weeks. Results: A complete control of intraocular inflammation was observed in 7/8 eyes (87.5%) at 12-month follow-up. The number of relapses 12 months before and after GOL initiation was 11 and 1, respectively. At baseline, four eyes had active retinal vasculitis (RV). At 3-month follow-up evaluation RV resolved in all eyes. Mean Best Corrected Visual Acuity was 6.93 ± 4.34 at baseline and 7.32 ± 3.87 at 12-months follow-up. Conclusion: We confirm GOL efficacy in reducing intraocular inflammation in BD, both in term of reduction in the number of uveitis relapses and in achieving a prompt resolution of active RV.
