Scleroderma -
On 10/09/1976, I was the head of the medical clinic of the Cardoso Fontes Hospital, and they had a consultant dermatologist there, Dr Ryssia Alvarez Floriao. A lady who had been unable to walk for 8 months was hospitalised. Dr Ryssia carried out three biopsies and send them to Dr Gloria Moraes head of Pathological Anatomy, who gave her medical opinion: terminal phase of scleroderma. Then Dr. Ryssia decided to give a lesson. Every Monday we had a lesson on cases that were not routine. And this was a very rare case. Scleroderma is an autoimmune disease that is not frequent.
A very good lesson was given and I learned a lot because I didn't know anything about scleroderma, I knew it from books, but I had never seen a scleroderma patient. When the lesson finished, Dr. Ryssia asked the nurse to take the patient away. I understood, now was the time to say what could be done for the patient. You asked to take the patient away, so she couldnt hear. She said: It is true. There is nothing I can do for this patient.
I asked Ryssia: Will you pass this patient to me, so I can apply a technique which is not usual and is called auto-hemotherapy? She laughed and said: You know that I arrived from the USA in May. There I was a resident doctor in a clinic for all the cases of scleroderma from all over the USA. So the clinic was nothing other than a repository of scleroderma patients. There was nothing more that could be done. Then what do you think you can do?
I said: Look, I am going home right now to get the two works of Dr. Jesse Teixeira and Dr. Ricardo Veronesi, and you will see that the idea makes sense. I arrived there and I read the main parts of the two works and I asked : "What now Ryssia?". Ah, it has logic, it may work, it is worth trying".
So I applied the auto-hemotherapy, but as it was something new, to be done in a hospital, I used a huge dose. I took 20 (twenty) cc of blood and applied 5 (five) cc in each arm (deltoid) and 5 (five) in each buttock, because I had to produce a result, whether it was going to work or not, I had to reach a conclusion.
The improvement was amazing. The patient, whose skin had the appearance of an alligators and was very hard, was heading towards a terrible death, that of asphyxia, because she would not be able to breathe anymore. The lungs cannot expand, because the body becomes as if were a wooden block. It seems unbelievable that 30 days later, on 10th October 1976, this patient could walk out of the hospital on foot.
