Tubulointerstitial Nephritis and Uveitis Syndrome: Case Series and Literature Review.

Case Rep Ophthalmol Med 2021 2;2021:1812271. Epub 2021 Jun 2.

Department of Ophthalmology, Beatriz Ângelo Hospital, Loures, Portugal.

Tubulointerstitial nephritis and uveitis syndrome (TINU) is a rare oculorenal inflammatory entity with a probable autoimmune etiology. Interstitial nephritis may be asymptomatic and usually has a benign course with spontaneous resolution. Uveitis, instead, is classically anterior, bilateral, and nongranulomatous, but it can be unilateral and presents as posterior uveitis or panuveitis, sometimes with a chronic or recurrent evolution.
