Abstract

The objective of this study is to report the improvement of the patient with Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM) with Korean Medical intervention. The patient, diagnosed as ADEM, was treated by acupuncture, moxibustion and herb medicine and wild ginseng distilled herbal acupuncture. We evaluated the consequences by checking Manual Muscle Test (MMT), Korean Version of Barthel Index (K-MBI). As a result, the patient improved significantly MMT and K-MBI inclined. In ADEM, the initial diagnosis is important, and through a Korean medicine, we were able to achieve meaningful treatment result. There is a limit on this study due to sufficient number of case, thus, further studies will be needed.
