TINU (tubulointerstitial nephritis uveitis) can be associated with chorioretinal scars.


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.
