ABSTRACT
A case of a young woman bas been presented; at the age of 26 she began to suffer from peripheral vascular disturbances, first on the right foot and then on the left. Although Buerger's disease is extremely rare in women, it seems to us that according to the clinical, histological and angiographic features described here we are able to confirm the diagnosis in our case.
