  1. Shown are cardiovascular risk factors in control individuals and in patients with Behçet's disease (BD) divided according to the receipt (+) or nonreceipt (-) of corticosteroid treatment and the clinical disease status. Unless otherwise stated, values are expressed as mean ± standard error. BMI, body mass index; HDL, high-density lipoprotein; LDL, low-density lipoprotein.
