New-onset psoriasis in a maintenance hemodialysis patient.

Author information

  • 1Kyanous Stavros Patron Dialysis Unit, Patras, Greece.


New-onset psoriasis is extremely rare in hemodialysis (HD) patients, and several trials of dialysis therapies (HD and peritoneal dialysis) in psoriasis have indicated remarkable improvement in skin lesions and well-being even in patients without renal impairment. We describe a patient who developed severe psoriasis despite undergoing chronic maintenance hemodialysis for 5 years and was treated successfully with oral cyclosporin A.
