Abstract

Five patients with psoriasis were treated with haemodialysis. Dialysis therapy was initiated for subsequent development of uraemia in three cases. All of these had successful renal transplants without recurrence of psoriasis while being maintained on post-transplant anti-rejection regimens. Two other cases were haemodialysed, not for uraemia but primarily for psoriasis. One case had moderate improvement of psoriasis after twice-weekly dialysis for two months while the second had no objective improvement up to one month after a single haemodialysis treatment.
