Abstract Background: Hemodylisis might load to sensori neural hearing loss. Prompt diagnosis and proper treatment. Objective: To evaluate the relationship between hemodialysis and sensorineural hearing loss. Methods: A group of 43 patients under the procedure of hemodylisis were compared with a control group of 43 patients who were in the same age range and sex. Findings: It was concluded that hemodiatic patients had reduced sensori-neural hearing ability, especially in higher-frequencies in both sexes. Reduced hearing sensation was higher infemales. The causative factors in reduction of hearing sensation were as follows: Hypotension,Osmotics , Uraemic neuropathy , Embolism and Electrolyte fluid during the dialysisprocedure. Duration of dialysis and the serum-level of creatinine and PTH didnot play anydecisive role in the loss of hearing sensation. Conclusion: There is relationship between hemodoalysis and sensorieural hearing loss especially higher frequencies in both sexes.
