ABSTRACT

1. Objectives Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) is thought to be due to debris which has collected within a part of the inner ear. It is best characterized by true vertigo and geotropic nystagmus that occur a few seconds after specific head movements. The symptoms of BPPV include dizziness or vertigo, lightheadedness, imbalance, and nausea. The vertigo usually lasts no more than a minute. This study is reported to evaluate the effect of Geopung-san(祛風 散) to patient with vertigo. 2. Methods This patient was treated by Geopung-san(祛風散) and Acupuncture, who was diagnosed as Soeumin interior disease. We used Visual analogue scale(VAS) for the assessment of vertigo. 3. Results This patient`s main symptom is vertigo according to head movement with nausea and vomiting. So she was treated by Geopung-san(祛風散) in『Dongyisasangsinpyun(東醫四象新編)』and showed a positive response about her problems. 4. Conclusions We suggest that Geopung-san(祛風散) is effected significantly to patient with vertigo, but then we consider that studies about the case like this are more needed.
