We demonstrate theoretically that the distortion-correction property of phase-conjugate beams propagating in reverse through aberrating media is also operative when the indices of refraction of the media depend on the intensity. A necessary condition is that the phase-conjugate mirror that generates the reflected beam possess a unity (magnitude) "reflection" coefficient.
