Objective: evaluation of the hemodialysis effect on the development of tinnitus and/or vertigo in patients with CKD. Materials and Method: 59 patients with CKD on regular hemodialysis were enrolled in this study. Results: patients mean age was 41.8 ± 9.2 years (range: 17–50 years). Male to Female ratio was 1.27:1. 16.95% of patients had tinnitus only, 16.95% had vertigo only, 30.51% had combination of both and only 35.59% didn’t develop symptoms. There was significant relation between the duration of hemodialysis and the development of tinnitus and vertigo (P value = 0.047). No significant relation was found between age, sex, serum electrolytes, blood urea and serum creatinine. Conclusion: Tinnitus and/or vertigo are common in patients with CKD on hemodialysis.
