A case of phlegmasia cerulea dolens in a 52-year-old man has been reported. Significant, improvement with marked diminution of gangrene formation, as compared with initial zone of demarcation, was attributed to the use of ACTASE Fibrinolys in (Human) in massive doses. Restoration of venous channels allowed early tissue repair. The loss of the distal extremity must be attributed to the limited circulation present in these parts.
