Cognitive impairment is relatively common in end-stage renal disease patients on chronic hemodialysis, but the course of cognitive function deterioration in hemodialysis patients is essentially unknown. The present study aimed to evaluate if changes in Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) over time in hemodialysis (HDP) and elderly (EP) patients differ significantly and determine the variables associated with such possible changes.
