Abstract: 
Background: There are several reports of different cutaneous manifestations in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF) managed by repeated hemodialysis, in the literature. Objectives: This study was conducted to evaluate the prevalence of skin manifestations in patients suffering from CRF who are on long-term hemodialysis.
Patients & The skin Methods: manifestations of 10S CRF patients who underwent homodialysis in Hemodialysis Center of Ahwaz University of Medical Sciences during the years 2000-2001 were studied by a dermatologist. The duration of dialysis in these patients was between 15 days and 101 months (mean: 17.04 mo.).
Results: All of the patients had at least one cutaneous sign or symptom. The most common finding was skin discoloration (77.7%). Other findings were nail changes (75%), xerosis (60.1%), Pruritus(5S.3%), ecchymosis(25.9%) and acquired perforating disorder(l.8%). There was no significant corelation between these findings and sex, age, duration of dialysis and underlying disease.
Conclusion: Cutaneous manifestations are common findings among CRF patients who are on long-term hemodialysis and dialysis possibly can affect the frequency of these findings.
