Mouth and genital ulcers with inflamed cartilage syndrome (also known as "MAGIC syndrome") is a cutaneous condition with features of both Behçet's disease and relapsing polychondritis.[1][2] Recently there is a question whether these two conditions are linked in the same individual or are two separate disorders.
