The results were compared and P-value less than 0.05 Was important.
Results: In eighteen patients, 10 (55.5%) boys and 8 (44.5%) grills with chronic renal failure were studied. According to cauterization, 45 cases were studied that in 17 (37.5%) cases Mupirocin and povidin iodine were used and in others (28 cases, 62.2%), only povidin iodine is used for prevention of colonization. Total culthers were 405 times that 61 (56.6%) times of group one and 187 (71.4%) times in second gronp were positive culthers (p=0.003).Staphylococcus epidermis is the most common organism (216, 61.2%) in culthers.
