Post-phlebitic illness, characterised by its great clinical polymorphism, justifies crenotherapy: in the months following thrombotic accident, as soon as possible, in order to get rid of functional and oedemic sequels, and articular stiffness in some cases. At this stage one can hope to check the development of the illness and delay the occurrence of complications; later, if trophic disorders set in, and especially at the constitution of sclero-inflammatory or sclerous hypodermitites. The ulcer not being a contra-indication. In all cases, crenotherapy has a remarkable and lasting effect on functional symptoms.
