ABSTRACT

ObjectivesThe aim of this study was to report the improvement of delirium and performance status in the small-cell lung cancer patient who had multiple brain metastases and pericardial effusion after Sasang constitutional treatment. MethodsWe retrospectively reviewed the medical records, medical laboratory and image scans of 71-year-old male patient diagnosed as small-cell lung cancer. ResultsThe small-cell lung cancer with multiple brain metastases patient sometimes talked deliriously even after the whole brain radiation therapy. During the hospitalization period, he showed delirium. We treated him with Gihwangbaekho-tang and Dojeokgangki-tang as a main therapy. After treatment, he didn't show delirium and performance status was improved. ConclusionsA small-cell lung cancer with multiple brain metastases patient showed the improvement of symptoms (delirium, poor performance status, constipation and poor oral intake) with the treatment of Gihwangbaekho-tang, Yanggyuksanhwa-tang and Dojeokgangki-tang.
