The cure of ulcers poses a problem as much for its chronicity as for the economic cost that they entail. The studies that are being carried out try to find new ways in the cure of ulcers of the different etiologies, among these studies highlights the cure of ulcers using platelet-rich plasma with different forms of administration. After the reading of different protocols and forms of cure, it was decided to treat a patient with a digital ulcer by chronic pressure of 6 weeks of evolution, which did not improve with conventional treatments. The technique of cure by clot of platelet-rich plasma was used, peripheral blood was extracted, the clot was prepared and placed on the ulcer with a 5-day cure. The results obtained were very satisfactory and in a few weeks the ulcer was completely closed presenting a small wound that was discharged and cured with local antiseptic.
