 A 40-year-old woman, who underwent repeated colectomies and presented with incomplete Behcet's disease, was admitted to our hospital for further treatment of an intractable ulcer at the anastomotic site. Ileocolonoscopy and barium follow-through study revealed an undermining ulcer with stenosis at the anastomosis site. Thus, intestinal resection of the anastomotic site was performed, and postoperative medication with infliximab and cyclosporine was initiated. However, acute flare-up and intestinal perforation occurred, requiring ileostomy. During her postoperative course, pancytopenia occurred, and trisomy 8-positive myelodysplastic syndrome was diagnosed via bone-marrow examination.
