Abstract

We report a case of tubulointerstitial nephritis and uveitis (TINU) syndrome in an adult male. A 40-year-old man was found to have bilateral anterior uveitis and mild renal insufficiency with high urinary β-2 microglobulin. Work up for connective tissue and infectious diseases were negative. His kidney function normalized spontaneously and remained normal at 1 year without intervention. Uveitis responded completely to local corticosteroid treatment and has not recurred.
