Complex clinical and immunological studies in 39 patients with uveitis and a history of nephropathies disclosed a relationship between renal diseases and vascular tract of the eyes. Specific features in the clinical symptomatology and immunological disorders were detected. Anterior and generalized forms, bilateral involvement, Tyndall's symptom, combined vitreolenticular changes, often with the exudative hemorrhagic component, predominated in the clinical picture of uveitis in patients with nephropathies. Uveitis ran a protracted course resistant to therapy, with frequent relapses. The disease occurred mainly in women. Predominant disorders in immunopathogenesis were disorders in the complex formation system. Uveitis in patients with nephropathies should be treated with due consideration for the etiology of nephropathy, clinical course of uveitis, and immunological disorders. Diseases of the vascular tract associated with nephropathy are rare in the etiological structure of uveitis and retinovasculitis (3.24%).
