Relapsing Polychondritis and Behçet's disease are different multisystem inflammatory diseases.
Patients in MAGIC syndrome usually present with chondritis, oral aphthous ulcers, genital ulcers, ocular inflammation and arthritis.
Kotter et all suggested that MAGIC syndrome is not a disease entity, but merely the association of Behçet's disease with polychondritis.
