Transcutaneous nerve stimulation (TNS) has previously been shown to improve microcirculation in ischemic limbs of patients with Raynaud’s phenomenon and diabetic neuropathy and to accelerate healing of chronic skin ulcerations. The present report deals with a patient with systemic sclerosis in which Raynaud’s phenomenon, ulcerations and pains in the feet, calcinosis and dysphagia have been successfully treated by TNS. The mechanisms implicated are discussed.
