VELILLA-ZANCADA, Sonsoles M  and  PRIETO-DIAZ, Miguel Ángel. Pruritus in a diabetic patient, is an indicator of target organ damage?. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2014, vol.30, n.4, pp.498-501. ISSN 0864-2125.

A seventy-one years-old diabetic and hypertensive male patient with generalized pruritus, probably of uremic etiology, as a result of a rapid deterioration of renal function was presented. After changing the treatment, with improvement in glomerular filtration rate and blood urea levels, clinical signs disappeared and the patient remains asymptomatic.

Keywords : pruritus; diabetes; renal insufficiency.
