Abstract: Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a serious condition of loss of renal function progressively occurs usually within a course of several years. It is increasing rapidly worldwide at an annual growth rate of 8 %. The prevalence of CKD is higher in developing countries than the developed countries are alarming and has become a major health issue. Haemodialysis patients are particularly predisposed to infections. The study is planned to assess the occurrence of different viral infection in CKD patients of Pre-Haemodialysis and Post Haemodialysis patients at Al-khoms teaching hospital, Al-khoms, Libya. Total of 71 (42 male and 29 female) cases of CKD with HD are included in the study. Blood samples are collected and centrifuged to take serum. Incidence of different viral infections are analysed from the serum of CKD patients after HD using ELISA technique. Generally viral infections are more in HD and transplant cases. But in this study no HIV is reported and few cases of HBV and HCV are found out. So prevention measures should be adopted to reduce or completely prevent these infections.
