Abstract

Two patients with renal disease and choroidal effusions are presented. The renal disease was mediated by humoral immunologic mechanisms as demonstrated by immunofluorescent studies of renal biopsies. Experimental and clinical studies provided evidence of simultaneous immune-complex deposition in both the renal glomerulus and the uvea of the eye. Immune-mediated vascular damage may result in glomerulonephritis and choroidal effusions.
