Dermatological manifestations in patients with chronic kidney disease
Dr. Laxminarayana Bhat
Dermatological manifestations in ESRD are varied and can impair the quality of life. Prompt diagnosis may help to ensure treatment which can in turn reduce the disease associated morbidity. Some prophylactic and remedial measures can prevent or decrease some of the adverse changes. These include emollients for xerosis, sunscreens and sun avoidance measures for pigmentary changes and cutaneous malignancies; oral hygiene to prevent oral mucosal changes; nutritional supplementation to prevent vascular fragility, angular cheilitis and hair loss; and prompt recognition and treatment of fungal infections like onychomycosis and tinea pedis, which are seen with increased incidence in CKD. Our study was conducted to evaluate the prevalence and pattern of cutaneous disorders among patients with chronic kidney disease.
