ABSTRACT

We managed a Taeumin(太陰人) patient with pleural effusion due to heart failure. We diagnosed as Wiwan-suhan-pyohan-byung(胃完受寒表寒病), and treated with Jowiseungchungtang(調胃升淸湯), going with western medicinal management. His chief complaint was orthopnea, chest discomfort, cough. The state of patient was measured with patient's complaints and chest X-ray. We gained outstanding improvement on patient's chief complaints, but there was no particular change of chest x-ray until thoracentesis. In this case, it seems that cooperations of east-west medicine would be beneficial to treatment of patients.
