DOI : 10.7778/jpkm.2016.30.1.001
Objectives The purpose of this study is to report the case of nocturnal enuresis in two children treated by using hypothesis that awareness during sleep may improves symptoms. Methods Enuresis children usually are not even aware of nocturnal urea due to excessive sleep. During the sleep cycle, enuresis children do not tend to have sleep-wake transition period compared to normal children. Ephedrine, the main ingredient of Ephedra sinica (麻黃), has a wakening effect. Two pediatric patients, who were suffering from nocturnal enuresis, were administered by Tosatang-gamibang (菟絲湯加味方) added Ephedra sinica (麻黃) or Boatang-gamibang (補兒湯加味方) added Ephedra sinica (麻黃) while correcting unhealthy voiding habit. Results As a result of the treatment, two pediatric patients were recovered without relapse. Conclusions In this report, we have proven that Tosatang-gamibang (菟絲湯加味方) added Ephedra sinica (麻黃) or Boatang-gamibang (補兒湯加味方) added Ephedra sinica (麻黃) and correcting voiding habit can considerably be effective in recovering nocturnal enuresis.

Objectives The purpose of this study is to analyze sinusitis patients who visited the department of pediatrics, OO Korean medicine hospital by using their age and to classify the clinical type by Korean medical theory. Methods The study was conducted based on 178 cases that consisted of sinusitis patients (from 1 to 15 years old) who visited OO Korean medicine hospital from March 2014 to March 2015. We analyzed the age of patients and classified them by the clinical type by reviewing patient`s charts. After that, we compared the results with the results of previous studies. Results and Conclusions 178 Patients were studied. 2-years-age group was 19.7% of the study group which was higher than that of previous studies. The Lung-Kidney Yin Deficiency (肺腎陰虛) group was 33.1%, Wind-Heat (風熱) group was 29.8% and the Wind-Cold (風寒) group 18.5%, Spleen-Lung Qi Deficiency (脾肺氣虛) group was 15.7% and the Heart-Spleen Qi Deficiency (心脾氣虛) group was 2.8% of the study group. Children are full of Yang but lack of Yin (陽常有餘陰常不足) so they easily transform into heat and fire (化熱化火). The patients who had sinusitis were most likely to suffer from the common cold for more than a week, once a month. 45.1% of the people from the study group was suffered from common cold more than a week, and 43.8% of the people got common cold once a months. About 21.6 % and 18.3% of the people got common cold twice a month and once every 2 months, respectively. The remaining 15.7% got cold during the season changes.

DOI : 10.7778/jpkm.2016.30.1.022
Objectives The purpose of this study is to investigate recent clinical studies on the effect of acupuncture for urticaria worldwide. Methods Based on the PubMed search with the key search terms of `urticaria, acupuncture`, dated between 2002 to 2015, a total of 9 randomized controlled trials (RCTs), 3 case series, and 2 case reports have been found, and were analyzed. Results and conclusions 1. The most commonly used acupoints were Quchi (LI 11), Xuehai (SP 10), Zusanli (ST 36), Sanyinjiao (SP 6), Dazhui (GV 14). 2. The most commonly used meridians were The Ren Channel, The Du Channel and The Gall Bladder Meridian of Foot-Shaoyang. 3. The treatment period varied from 12 days to 3 months. 4. Acupuncture treatment found to be significantly more or equally effective than the western medicine. 5. More clinical studies are needed to prove a true effectiveness of the acupuncture for urticaria. In case of laboratory tests, serum immunoglobulin E (IgE), interleukin 4 (IL-4) and Helicobacter pylori negative rate might be helpful.

DOI : 10.7778/jpkm.2016.30.1.032
Objectives To evaluate the effectiveness of allergic rhinitis treatment, and to set the ground in clinical studies, adequate outcome measures must be established. Thus, this study was designed to develop useful criteria based on those that have been suggested, and those that we are using today. Methods To assess outcome measures used in allergic rhinitis in Korean medicine, related articles found in Korea Traditional Knowledge Portal from 2000-2015 were evaluated. Then pattern identification and outcome measures were reviewed in each study. Results Among 27 studies, we have found 24 studies used subjective symptoms as outcome measures, 9 studies used quality of life, and most of allergic rhinitis were caused by Spleen-Gi deficiency. Conclusions It is necessary to develop outcome measures that directly reflect pattern identifications in Korean medicine, and those measures need to be further evaluated for their applicability, validity and sensitivity.
