We report a rare case of a patient with Behçet’s syndrome who developed end-stage renal failure due to crescentic glomerulonephritis (GN). A 20-year-old male patient had suffered from uveitis, aphthous mouth ulcers and genital ulceration for the past 7 years. His renal function rapidly deteriorated and renal biopsy specimens obtained when his serum creatinine level was 3 mg/dl showed diffuse proliferative GN with fibrous crescent formation in 75% of glomeruli excluding totally sclerotic glomeruli. Immune complexes were identified by demonstration of complement and immunoglobulins in the glomeruli. He developed end-stage renal failure during a 1-year course and received maintenance hemodialysis. We reviewed the literature on severe forms of GN in patients with Behçet’s syndrome.
