We have used ozone therapy, like part of the treatment, of 30 
patients suffering from reactive arthritis, in the last three 
years. No significant difference in sex distribution were present, 
with predominance in ages less than 45 years. Patients with 
reactive polyarthritis and Reiter Syndrome were included in our 
study. In 55 % of patients, reactive arthritis was consequence of 
upper respiratory sepsis. The clinical evaluation was 
satisfactory, with a fast improvement and without side-effects.
