Abstract

Objectives: The prevalence of cholelithiasis is increasing in both the East and West, and this can have a great impact on the quality of life. This study reports on a patient whose cholelithiasis was improved using Daesiho-tang. Methods: A patient diagnosed with cholelithiasis was treated with acupuncture and herbal medicine. Abdominal pain due to cholelithiasis was evaluated by a numerical rating scale. Results: After 35 days of taking Daesiho-tang, the symptoms of abdominal pain and indigestion improved. Even afterwards, the patient maintained an improved quality of life without recurrence. Conclusions: Korean medicine treatment was effective in improving the symptoms of cholelithiasis. However, studies of various cases will likely be needed in the future.
