Sutton disease  (Periadenitis Mucous Necrotic Recurrent) is a 
rather rare pathological condition characterized by several 
ulceration of the mouth, very painful,  to a tendency to relapse 
and with a retracted healing. Many factors are involucrated in the 
pathogenesis of this disease, but the immgical response is one of 
the main aspects considered in the evolution of the pathological 
process. It is presented a case of a 12-year-old age patient with 
diagnosis of Sutton disease with 5 years of evolution, without  
satisfactory results, after testing multiple therapeutic methods. 
The patient has been treated with  ozone therapy by gas rectal 
insufflation (20 sessions) and local applications of ozonized 
sunflower oil (OLEOZON) during 2 years. Relapses decrease during 
the treatment and the healing of the ulcerous injuries was more 
rapid and scar retractions was not observed.  It is made a wide 
review of the topic in order to justify the application of this 
therapeutic method. This is the first report using ozone therapy 
treatment in this disease.
