Materials and Methods: After recording the demographicdata and the diagnosis of disease by a specialist, 44 patients with CRF undergoing hemodialysis with 44 CRF non-hemodialysjs patients were evaluated.
Results: Pruritus in case group was 2.8 times of control group (P=0.033). Pruritus in female patients with CRF undergoing hemodialysis was 7.4 times of non-hemodialysis patients (P=0.006 N). No relation was found between itching and hemodialysis in male patients with CRF.
