Background:In end-stage renal disease patients on hemodialysis, it is important to identify the pattern of relation between parathyroid hormone & left ventricularhypertrophy to reduce the risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. This study was conducted to find the relation between the Parathyroid hormone and the left ventricular hypertrophy in hemodialysis patients in King Abdul-Aziz university hospital in Jeddah. Method&Results Apilot study was conductedin King Abdulaziz university hospital among inpatients & outpatients on dialysis for at least three months,all the demographic & medical data were collected from patientsfiles including PTH level & echo findings. The total patients were 41(26 males & 15 females) with mean age 53.5±16.6. 19 (46.3%) were diabetes &30 (73.2%) had hypertension. The ejection fraction mean score was (56.4±13.8). The mean log for PTH was 1.0±0.4, 2.4±0.3 for corrected calcium &1.9 ±0.2 for ALP. A significant difference was found between PTH & hemodialysis patients (P=0.002). There was a significant correlation between PTH &LVH. conclusion: More studies need to conduct to help in improving the mortality &the morbidity rate in hemodialysis patients due to cardiovascular disease particularlyleft ventricular hypertrophy
