The Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) is an approved method of healing lower extremity ulcers of various origin, accelerating the wound closure process, thus decreasing the hospital-stay time and lowering the cost of the treatment. Although it is scarcely needed in developing countries such as Kenya, there is a lack of official supplier of the NPWT equipment. We present an improvised method of constructing a reliable and effective NPWT dressing form widely available tools in a case of treating a post-traumatic phlegmon in a HIV-positive patient.
