Peritoneal Dialysis is a method of renal replacement therapy which uses the peritoneum as a semipermeable membrane, removing solutes accumulated in the blood. The aim of study was to describe the socio-demographic profile of patients who underwent treatment for DP between January/ 2005 to December/2008 in a clinical state of Sergipe. Data were obtained from the clinic's electronic medical record. There was a predominance of males, mulattoes, and good old school, and that hypertension and
diabetes are the major co-morbidities. We conclude that meet the profile of patients is important for the planning of educational activities.
