We herein report a case of Behçet’s disease with renal infarction due to mucormycosis. A 76-year-old man with entero-Behçet’s disease had been treated with glucocorticoid and tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors. His entero-Behçet’s disease was refractory to these treatments, and ileocecal resection was performed. After the operation, renal infarction that was unresponsive to anticoagulation therapy developed. He ultimately died of renal failure due to renal infarction. At the autopsy, histopathology of abundant hyphae in the renal vessel wall revealed mucormycosis. Renal mucormycosis is an important cause of renal failure with renal infarction in immunocompromised patients.
