DOI : 10.6114/jkood.2012.25.4.045
Objective : This study was done to investigate the correlation between general quality of life(QOL) and disease specific QOL of tinnitus patients. Methods : 2009 National health and nutrition survey(NHNS) data were employed for analyzing the mean estimates of total population and tinnitus sub-group patients, and predicting the regression equation of mapping between EQ-5D and disease severity. Baseline statistical analyses and normality tests were done by using Student t-test, Chi-square test, Shapiro-Wilk test and ladder test. Hierarchial regression analyses were performed using related variables and predicted the optimal regression equations. Statistical significance was achieved if the probability was less than 5%. Results : Firstly, the standardized prevalence of tinnitus patient in South Korea was 18.69% and over 90th age-group was relatively higher than other groups. Mean value of domestic QOL measured by EQ-5D was estimated as 0.9486 and QOL of tinnitus subgroup(0.9169) was lower than the non-tinnitus subgroup(0.9559), significantly. Stratified by age and sex, QOLs of all sub-groups with tinnitus were lower than without tinnitus sub-groups significantly. Regression equations from 2009 NHNS data were developed using hierarchial regression analysis which is as follows.
=Other explanatory variables except Tinnitus QOL1, 2, 3,
= Regression Coefficient of Model 4) Conclusion : We confirmed the correlation among THI and EQ-5D and HUI-III, and developed the inference for regression equation of EQ-5D.

Background and Objective : Bowen's disease is a type of an in situ squamous cell carcinoma. Typical type of Bowen's disease present as a gradually growing well-dermarcated erythematous plaque with an irregular border and surface crusting or scaling. This case demonstrates that Bowen's disease which had a relapse during applying the topical imiquimod can be treated by herbal medicine. Methods : A 72-year-old man patient presented with a erythematous plaque on his right medial malleolar area. The diagnosis of Bowen's disease was based on the clinical features. The chief complaints were scales, fissures, crusts and dryness of skin, erythema plaque, hyperpigmentation, bleeding, tenderness on the lesion. He was treated with Mahaengeuigam-Tang for 77 days. The severity of Bowen's disease was evaluated by visible assessment to determine the end-point of clearance. Results : After the treatment, fissures, crusts and dryness of skin and bleeding, tenderness on the lesion were vanished. Scales and erythema plaque, hyperpigmentation of the lesion little remained. Conclusions : Mahaengeuigam-Tang can be used on the treatment of skin disease which has characteristics plaques and crusts of skin.

DOI : 10.6114/jkood.2012.25.4.080
Background and Objective : Atrophic scars are the most common complication of acne. Many modalities are proposed but each does not yield satisfactory clinical outcomes. Among therapeutic modalities of acne scars, subcision is a simple, safe procedure with a different and basic mechanism for correcting atrophic and depressed scars. However, there are few reports about such procedure. This study performed to evaluate the effect of subcision treatment on atrophic acne scar. Methods : Five patients with atrophic acne scars of various types(rolling, superficial and deep boxcar, pitted and icepick) were treated by superficial dermal undermining with 25~27 gauge needles. We used GASC(Global Acne Scarring Classification). Satisfaction degree was asked from the patients. Results and Conclusions : After observing patients satisfaction, comparing case photos and GASC, it can be considered that subcision treatment brings great results when performed on atrophic post acne scars.
