Twenty five patients with end stage renal disease were studied to find out the biochemical and hepatic morphological changes during short term haemodialysis. Asymptomatic hepatomegaly was seen in 32% of cases, transaminase elevation in 28% and positive Australia antigen in 12% of cases. Histopathological changes were observed in all the 12 patients in whom liver biopsy was done. Ten patients (82%) exhibited multiple abnormalities. The commonest findings were fatty change (8 patients); hepatic congestion, focal necrosis, Kupffer cell hyperplasia (6 patients each); and portal triaditis (5 patients).
