A patient with IgA nephropathy developed cotton-wool spots and serous retinal detachments. Fluorescein angiography demonstrated choroidal infarcts in both eyes from hypertensive retinopathy in acute on chronic renal failure. Plasmapheresis and hemodialysis led to visual recovery. Acute ocular hypertensive changes from IgA nephropathy may be reversed by plasmapheresis and hemodialysis.
