ABSTRACT

Objectives :This study was performed to report the effect of oriental medical treatments in one patient with traumatic thigh subcutaneous hematoma by traffic accident. Methods :The patient was treated by acupuncture, herbal medicine, pharmacopuncture and cupping for 3 months. Results :After treatments, VAS(visual analog scale) score changed from 10 to 0. MR Imaging showed that the size of subcutaneous hematoma has decreased from 5×11×5.8 cm to 2.4×3.2×2.6 cm. And the palpation results also showed that the size of subcutaneous hematoma has gotten smaller. Conclusions :Our study suggests that oriental medical treatments such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, pharmacopuncture and cupping may be effective in traumatic subcutaneous hematoma. More cases of controlled treatments are needed to define the effect of oriental medical treatments for traumatic subcutaneous hematoma.
