Background: A lot of studies have shown the relationship between personality and stress coping strategies. Patients under chemotherapy and hemodialysis patients experience much stress during treatment. Therefore, the aim of the present study was examining the relationship between personality and stress coping strategies in these patients.

Among patients who referred to Shohadaye Tajrish and Shahid Modares hospitals in Tehran, 160 patients( 80 individuals of each disease) were selected in an available sampling method.

Findings: The findings showed there is a significant negative relationship between neurosis and problem-oriented solving strategy, there is a significant negative relationship between flexibility and avoidant coping style and there is a significant positive relationship between neurosis and avoidant coping style.
