Abstract

The purpose of this study was to report an anaphylaxis after treated with Bee-venom acupuncture. Anaphylaxis is a clinical syndrome characterized by the acute system reaction of multiple organ systems to an IgE-mediated immunologic mediator release in previously sensitized individuals. We investigated the patients who had injected with Bee-venom in our clinic from March 2, 2014 to May 30, 2015. and two patients of anaphylaxis treated by Bee-Venom acupuncture were observed. One case of anaphylaxis was expressed clinically hypotension drowsy mentality, dyspnea, vomiting and so on. The other case was expressed itching sensation, urticaria, breathlessness, abdominal pain and so on. Based on this case, Bee venom-induced anaphylaxis can occur although preceding reactions are local or mild systemic ones. So, Korean medical doctor using Bee-Venom acupuncture must be prepare the system consider a countermeasure by anaphylaxis.
