Abstract: A 45-year-old woman experiencing back pain showed signs of metabolic acidosis and electrolyte imbalances. The results of blood and urine tests indicated Fanconi syndrome and renal tubular acidosis. An x-ray showed vertebral fractures, which were thought to responsible for the back pain. In addition, the patient had proteinuria and renal dysfunction; therefore, renal biopsy was performed, and tubulointerstitial nephritis (TIN) was diagnosed. While investigating TIN, primary biliary cirrhosis and Sjögren’s syndrome were also detected. She had been previously diagnosed with chronic thyroiditis. We report a rare case of TIN and 3 autoimmune disorders with review of literature.
