Abstract

Purpose: To report a case series of patients with chorioretinal lesions secondary to tubulointerstitial nephritis and uveitis (TINU). Methods: Retrospective chart review of patients with TINU. Results: We found 4 patients (3 with a possible or probable diagnosis of TINU and 1 with a definite diagnosis of TINU) and multiple chorioretinal lesions. Conclusion: Tubulointerstitial nephritis and uveitis usually presents with anterior uveitis, but chorioretinal lesions do occur and may facilitate the diagnosis.
