ABSTRACT
1. Seven patients suffering from phlebitis migrans without impairment of arterial circulation have been studied, 2, None of the patients developed arterial disease during a follow-up period of 8 to 11 years although the vein biopsies in 2 revealed microscopic changes characteristic of Buerger's disease, 3. Despite the continuation of activity of the disease in 4 of the patients, little disability was suffered from the condition and only 1 developed involvement of the deep veins, 4, Smoking did not produce any deleterious effects in the 4 who continued to smoke although episodes of phlebitis migrans stopped with cessation of smoking in 2.
