94 uremic patients, 68 on regular hemodialysis treatment (RHT) and 26 on chronic ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD), were followed for up to 20 months in search of dermatological manifestations. 79% of RHT and 76% of CAPD patients had some kind of cutaneous lesion. The most characteristic features of cutaneous involvement in RHT and CAPD patients were: cutaneous xerosis, pruritus, infectious manifestations and disorders of pigmentation. In 4 RHT patients, precancerous and cancerous manifestations were also observed.
