Abstract

Cases of vasculitis constitute essential clinical and therapeutic problems because in the majority of cases it is not possible to establish its aetiology. Knowledge of the clinical and morphological features of such illnesses is very important because the occurrence of changes on the skin very often precede later changes in internal organs. The symptoms of these diseases appear to be very burdensome, and conventional pharmacological therapy brings results that are very limited. Ever more often in medicine, in the absence of positive, satisfactory effects of conventional treatment, physical methods are used in therapy. This article presents the treatment of a 73-year-old female patient who was subjected to magnetotherapy, having had a diagnosis of leukocytoclastic vasculitis of the right foot. The therapeutic results obtained are a contribution in support of the continued application of magnetic fields in the treatment of this disease.
