 Abstract
Objectives The aim of this study was to report an improvement on the symptoms of Eosinophilic Colitis (EC) by Yeoldahanso-tang.Methods The patient was diagnosed with Taeumin Ganyeol-paeJo Symptomatology and treated with Yeoldahanso-tang. The gastroendoscopy and eosinophilic infitration of mucosa of colitis are investigated. Also patient`s subjective symptom of abdominal pain was scored using the Numerical Rating Scale(NRS) during the treatment period. And the number of defecation in a day is also used to decide the degree of colitis.Results and Conclusions The patient had been treated from December 13, 2014 to August 8, 2015. Eosinophilic infiltration of colon was disappeared after the treatment although chronic inflammation still existed. Subjective pain of abdominal pain was measured as NRS 6~8 at the beginning of the remedy, but diminished through the treatment sessions and became NRS 0 in the end. The number of defecation was in average 3, and at the endpoint it became 1. In conclusion, this study suggests that Sasang constitutional Medicine used for treating EC of Taeumin may be effective.
