Resumen

Objetivo: revisar la literatura sobre el síndrome de nefritis tubulointersticial y uveítis (TINU) y reportar un caso de un paciente con policondritis recidivante (PR) y síndrome TINU. Método: el síndrome TINU es un trastorno inflamatorio oculorenal raro. Es más común en mujeres jóvenes con condiciones autoinmunes, infecciones, enfermedades sistémicas y uso previo de medicamentos. Divulgamos el caso de una mujer de 62 años con policondritis recidivante y una historia de 2 años de uveítis aguda, recurrente, asimétrica, bilateral, anterior, no granulomatosa acompañada de nefritis tubulointersticial. Resultados: el paciente fue diagnosticado con síndrome TINU asociado a policondritis recidivante. No se han reportado casos de esta asociación en la literatura. Las características clínicas del síndrome TINU se discuten en base a los trabajos publicados. Conclusiones: TINU es un síndrome poco común; solo alrededor de 200 casos han sido reportados en la literatura relacionada con infecciones, enfermedades sistémicas y uso previo de medicamentos como antibióticos y antiinflamatorios no esteroideos (AINE). Encontramos que puede asociarse con policondritis recidivante; por lo tanto, es importante investigar los síntomas de esta enfermedad ya que el síndrome TINU puede coexistir con ella
