BACKGROUND The effective therapy for uremic pruritus remains a clinical challenge, and the factors affecting the pruritus before and after parathyroidectomy have not been defined. STUDY DESIGN Thirty-seven patients were operated on for secondary hyperparathyroidism. Their ages ranged from 14 to 73 years, and the duration of dialysis from 12 to as long as 168 months.
