Author(s): Christina L. Kong, Betul Bayraktutar, Ralitsa Loewen, Elizabeth Conner, Eduardo V. Zambrano, Lama Khatib, Marie-Hélène Errera

Although tubulointerstitial nephritis with uveitis (TINU) is a rare disorder that represents only 1-2% of all uveitis cases in tertiary care settings, it remains a common diagnosis among children and adolescents [1, 2]. Among young individuals with uveitis, up to one-third may have TINU [1, 3]. The condition most often presents as an acute, bilateral, non-granulomatous anterior uveitis [4, 5]. However, TINU may present with findings beyond the anterior segment [1, 6, 7]. In this report, we present an example of such a case.
