The salivation rate was checked with visual analogue scale(VAS). Results : There was a more than 50 % decrease in salivation in this case. Owing to the constipation, trihexyphenidyl was stopped after which only Korean medical treatments were provided. Over which a lasting decrease in salivation could be seen. Conclusions : Existing treatments would cause several considerable side effects and have difficulty in being applied in domestic clinics. In this respect, we suspect that our findings could open up new clinical guideline possibilities. We should solve the limitations of this case study and conduct more studies.
