Paper Abstract

This article considers the application of low-intensity laser therapy in treating patients with granuloma annulare. The treatment was carried out by using two different laser therapeutic techniques, namely, the local laser irradiation of pathological foci and the laser transcutaneous irradiation of blood. It was found that both techniques produced a unidirectional effect, brought about a pronounced improvement of the clinical picture of the disease, and normalized microcirculation and microvascular reactivity of the affected skin.
