Abstract

A 38-year-old female patient with acute tubulo-interstitial nephritis and uveitis (TINU syndrome) is described. The cause of this rare disease is unknown; most patients affected are adolescent females. Serologic investigations in the patient reported point to a possible etiologic role of Chlamydia infection in this disease.
