Numerous specific cutaneous signs have been described in association with chronic renal failure. They are mainly represented by pallor or hyperpigmentation, purpura, urea frosting, xerosis and pruritus, metastatic calcification, specific onychopathy, perforating disorder and bullous dermatoses. Hemodialysis also has often been reported to influence the appearance of such conditions. The case of a 44 year-old woman who had been suffering from congenital polycistic kidney disease and developed bullous pemphigoid during haemodialysis is reported. The possible relationship between chronic bullous dermatoses and renal failure is discussed and analyzed on the basis of a new classification attempt.
