Idiopathic acute interstitial nephritis and uveitis in the adult. Report of 1 case and review of the literature
American Journal of Nephrology
In a 59-year-old female, concurrence of acute interstitial nephritis and uveitis was observed. While the clinical signs resolved after a few weeks, signs of renal tubular dysfunction persisted for 9 months, and creatinine clearance was still impaired (22 ml/min) more than 2 years after beginning of the symptoms. This is the 5th case of idiopathic interstitial nephritis with concomitant uveitis reported in adult patients. In contrast to the benign evolution observed in children, the renal function may remain impaired in adults.
