 Introduction: Sensorinueral hearing loss has been said to occur in chronic renal failure patients with a prevalence of 20 to 40%[2]. But the exact association of sensorinueral hearing loss and chronic kidney disease is not known.  Aim: To determine the prevalence and degree of hearing loss in chronic kidney disease patients on hemodialysis.  Methodology: This was a case control study which comprised of 30 adult chronic renal failure patients and 30 controls. Pure tone audiometry was performed on each individual. Prevalence and degree of hearing loss was determined using descriptive statistics. Chi-square test was used to determine association between variables. The differences were considered significant if the p value was less than 0.05.  Result: This study found that 76.67% chronic kidney disease patients experienced sensorinueral hearing loss. Of the chronic kidney patients with hearing loss, 52.17% patients had bilateral hearing loss. All of these patients experienced mild hearing loss.  Conclusion: Mild sensorinueral hearing loss is common in chronic kidney disease patients. It is found that there is no association between the duration of the disease, the number of sessions of hemodialysis and hearing loss in chronic kidney disease patients. High frequency hearing loss is found to be more prevalent.
