ABSTRACT
Objectives:
To observe the therapeutic effects of Oriental herbal prescriptions on an advanced metastatic gallbladder cancer patient.

Methods :
Hang-Am-Plus (HAP), Gun-Chil-Gye-Bok-Jung (GGJ) and Se-Gan-San (SGS) were prescribed three times a day. To observe the therapeutic effects of oriental medical prescriptions, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) images, tumor markers and laboratory tests were carried out regularly.

Results:
The levels of AST, ALT, ALP, γ-GTP, TB, DB, CA19-9, and CEA decreased significantly from November 29th 2011 to March 14th 2012. There was no interval change on CT images taken between November 15th 2011 and January 3rd 2012.

Conclusions:
In this case, it could be concluded that Oriental medicinal treatment might be considered as a palliative alternative therapy for the advanced metastatic gallbladder patient.
Key words: Gall bladder cancer, metastatic, herbal prescription
