The role of the gravitomagnetic field in the rotation of galaxies is clarified. Larmor’s theorem simplifies the analysis of different galactic equilibrium solutions. In particular, the self-consistent solution, which takes into account both the equivalent Larmor gravitomagnetic field and fluid convection, recovers previous results that reproduce galactic rotation curves without recourse to dark matter.
