Clinical and histological skin changes were studied in 30 cases of chronic renal failure. Generalised pruritus and numbness were the commonest symptoms observed in 14 and 11 patients respectively. Ichthyotic skin changes of varying degree were observed in 27 cases and hyperpigmentation of sun-exposed skin was seen in 11 cases. Half and half nails were seen in 4 cases only. Cutaneous changes like pruritus, pallor, scaling and hair loss correlated strongly with the severity of renal failure. Histopathological examination revealed epidermal and dermal changes, latter were seen only in moderate to severe cases of renal failure.
