PROPHYLAXIS OF RECURRENT ERYSIPELAS IN PATIENTS WITH LIMB LYMPHOEDEMA HOMOTOXICOLOGICAL TREATMENT PRELIMINARY RESULTS D. Corda, MD Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine Specialist. The most frequent complications of patients with chronic lymphostasis are erysipelas and lymphangitis. In the absence of adequate decongestion, antibiotic therapy is not sufficient to significantly reduce the amount of bacteria. This eventually leads to chronicity of infection with progressive worsening of the clinical features of involved soft tissues. In recent years, we have observed multi antibiotic resistance of bacteria localized on the skin of patients affected by chronic lymphostasis. There is an increasing difficulty to eradicate the infection with a consequent progressive chronic inflammation leading to critical degree of tissue degeneration. In this work, we reported data obtained in lymphedema patients from the implementation of homotoxycological programs designed to treat acute and chronic persistent erysipelas and to prevent relapses. Results of this approach seem promising and indicate to propose to patients and pratictioners a combined approach with conventional and homotoxycological program to treat these conditions.
