The Journal of Korean Medicine Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology and Dermatology, volume 27, issue 2, 2014, Pages 1~13
DOI : 10.6114/jkood.2014.27.2.001
Objective : The purpose of this study is to understand conspicuous features of geroderma with visceral manifestation theory(臟象論). Methods : We categorized skin aging into wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, dry skin and face flush. After investigating the reason, histological changes and mechanism of each classification in western medicine, we interpreted them according to the malfunction of five viscera(五臟) in Korean medicine. Result : The results are as follows. 1. Pathologic change of dermis and subcutaneous fat makes wrinkles. We consider wrinkles as the malfunction of the spleen(脾). 2. Irregular synthesis and disproportion of melanin makes hyperpigmentation. We consider hyperpigmentation as the malfunction of the liver(肝). 3. Dry skin is attributed to a subtle disorder of epidermal maturation. We consider dry skin as the malfunction of the lung(肺). 4. Facial flush is detected in rosacea and menopausal hot flush, which are both related with blood vessel abnormality. We consider facial flush as the malfunction of the heart(心) Conclusion : We interpreted the pathologic changes and mechanism of skin aging in western medicine as the decrease of five viscera(五臟) in visceral manifestation theory(臟象論) of Korean medicine. Further studies are needed to apply these hypothesis to clinical diagnosis and treatment.

DOI : 10.6114/jkood.2014.27.2.014
Objective : This study was carried out to analyze the trends of ophthalmology related articles that have been published in the Journal of Korean Medical Ophthalmology, Otolaryngology, Dermatology(JKOOD). Method : We studied 72 research papers relevant to Ophthalmology that published in JKOOD from 1988 to 2013. All the paper were classified into three categories; original article, review article and case report. We also analyzed the articles according to the sort of diseases. We sub-classified the original articles into three categories descriptive study, analytic study and experimental study. We analyzed the case report according to various types of treatment. Result : 1. The number of searched journals is 72 papers; 21 review articles, 18 original articles, 33 case reports 2. Classification of 18 original articles into three categories; 12 descriptive studies, 0 analytic study, 6 experimental studies. 3. Distribution of diseases in ophthalmology; the percentage of 'strabismus' ranked the highest(25%) in case report. 4. Method of Evaluation in retina disease ; the percentage of fundus photography ranked the highest(50%) Conclusions : It is needed to develop the methods of study in part of eye disease. The studies using modern medical equipment should be increased in ophthalmology of Korean Medicine. It will be helpful to obtain objectivity and increase quality of studies.

Mok, Jung-Il ; Lee, Ji-Eun ; Seo, Hyung-Sik ;
The Journal of Korean Medicine Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology and Dermatology, volume 27, issue 2, 2014, Pages 33~50
DOI : 10.6114/jkood.2014.27.2.033
Objective : The purpose of this study is to analyze research trends on laser output used for treatment of hair loss. Methods : We searched papers using Pubmed, NDSL, KISS, and RISS. First search used the keyword "Laser, Alopecia" in Pubmed. Inclusion criteria were last 15 years, English, related to output. Finally we searched papers using the keyword "Laser and Alopecia" in NDSL, KISS, and RISS. Inclusion criteria were the same as first research except for English. Results : A total of 43 studies were found, 28 studies were excluded and 15 studies were selected and analyzed. And of the 15 studies, 7 studies were foreign papers and 8 studies were domestic papers on clinical application of laser status. Mainly Used type of laser was a diode laser. As a result, we found that treatment group had more improvement than control group. The range of the laser-output was 1mW-150W in Alopecia laser therapy. Conclusions : Low-level (LLLT) as well as High-level laser therapy (HLLT) can be effectively used as an alternative to the treatment of alopecia. Thus, further attention and studies are needed on this topic in order to reduce the side effects and demonstrate the effectiveness clearly.

DOI : 10.6114/jkood.2014.27.2.051
Objectives : Reaserch on ophthalmology drawings in Euibangyoochui reveals the medical historic flows of the theory of ohryun-palgwak that is representative theory of ophthalmology. Methods : Ophthalmology drawings are divided into ohryun-palgwak drawings and eye disease drawings. Four picture of ophthalmology drawings in Euibangyoochui are shown in the books of suwolnobangyung, seeuidekhyobang, suyeoksinbang. Results : Ohryun drawing which describes the relationship between eyes and five viscera mentioned in lingshu. This is based on the theory of five elements. Palgwak drawing shows the combination palgwak theory and the eight trigrams of iching. Conclusions : In Korean Medicine theory of the eye, the diagnosis of eyes could be diagnosed eye disease and diseases of five viscera and six entrails. Each parts of the eye are reflected disorders in the five viscera and six entrails. Ophthalmology drawings in Euibangyoochui explains well these theories.

Objective : The purpose of this study is to report the effectiveness of a Korean Medicine Treatment on 45 facial atopic dermatitis patients. Methods : Total 45 facial atopic dermatitis patients, who has visited korean medical clinic in year 2011 were analyzed by Objective SCORAD Index(OSI) and Investigator's Global Assessment(IGA). Subanalysis of OSI and IGA were done according to topical ointment user/non-user, treatment period and change in IGA distribution. Results : 1. Male and female percent was 20%:80%. 17.8% were teens, 55.6% were twenties, 13.3% were thirties, 13.3% were above age forty. 64.4% were on topical ointment treatment of corticosteroid or calcineurin inhibitor, and 35.6% were not at the initial visit. Patients with family history were 44.4% and 62.2% had atopic dermatitis past history. 2. OSI and IGA were significantly lower after 1~3, 3~6, 6~9 month of treatment. Average post-treatment score was lower in longer-treated group. 3. IGA distribution has changed from average 3.42 at the first visit to 1.76 at final visit. 91.1% of total patients reported decrease in IGA at the final visit. 4. OSI and IGA improvement rate were significantly higher in non-topical ointment user than the user. Age, treatment period, initial OSI and IGA score difference were not significantly different. Conclusion : A significant percent of 45 facial atopic dermatitis patients who were treated with Korean Medicine Treatment reported decrease in OSI and IGA. The difference increased with the treatment period. Non-topical ointment users' improvement was significantly higher than topical ointment user.

Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada(VKH) Disease is a bilateral granulomatous uveitis often associated with exudative retinal detachment and extraocular manifestations, such as pleocytosis in the cerebrospinal fluid and, in some case, vitiligo, poliosis, alopecia, and dysacusis. There has been no previous report for the disease in the field of Korean traditional medicine. The case was treated with conventional medical intervention and Korean traditional treatment including acupuncture and herbal medicine. The case was discharged with improvement in fundus photography and optical coherence tomography. The authors report the case to suggest that Korean medical approach combined with conventional treatment can be helpful for the disease.
