Detailed Description:

Acitretin is given to hemodialysis patients who have developed in-situ or invasive squamous cell carcinoma of the skin in increasing doses up to 25 mg daily for one year. Plasma levels of acitretin will be monitored and influence of hemodialysis on acitretin plasma levels will be determined. Number of in-situ or invasive squamous cell carcinoma of the skin cases will be determined.
