Twenty patients with extensive psoriasis of more than three years duration not responding to conventional medical treatment were studied to assess the effect of dialysis. Ten patients were subjected to haemodialysis and ten to peritoneal dialysis. Patients were periodically assessed regarding responses by standard critera. At the end of six months 4/8 (50%) in haemodialysis group and 6/10(60%) in peritoned dialysis group showed improvement. One patient in haemodialysis group developed exfoliative dermatitis eleven days after onset of dialysis. In this study though a beneficial effect in psoriasis was noted following dialysis, the effect was temporary.
