Ozone therapy was chosen as a complementary treatment, as it has an anti-inflammatory, antithrombotic and antihypoxic character. Three characteristics with which the disease occurs.2

The evolution of the patients was managed on an outpatient basis without complications and took place in a short period (5 to 7 days), which was accompanied by the improvement of clinical, immunological, biochemical and hematological indicators. No adverse events were observed during treatment. This case report is indicative of the likely efficacy of these complementary treatments and it is recommended that larger clinical studies be conducted that can demonstrate the benefits of these treatments.
