A 53-year-old male visited an ophthalmologist for blurring of vison since 2 weeks before. His corrected visual acuity was 0.8 right and 0.3 left. Serous retinal detachment was present in both eyes. When seen by us 5 days later, his visual acuity was hand motion in both eyes. Both eyes showed flat anterior chamber. The intraocular pressure was 64 mmHg right and 58 mmHg left. Both eyes showed extensive bullous retinal detachment with choroidal detachment. His systemic blood pressure was 190/90 mmHg. Laboratory studies showed signs of acute renal failure, leading to the diagnosis of secondary uveal effusion syndrome. Ensuing hemodialysis induced improved systemic findings followed by normalized intraocular pressure and disappearance of retinal and choroidal detachments. This case illustrates that uveal effusion syndrome may result from acute renal failure.
