ABSTRACT
Objectives:
The purpose of this study was to report the safety of diarrhea-inducing treatment (Xie-xia Fa, 瀉下法) by Euphorbia kansui Radix, especially in the respect of clinical features, liver and kidney functions.

Methods:
Patients who were treated with Euphorbia kansui Radix powder between September 2013 and September 2014 were assessed retrospectively.

Results:
Less than 6 grams dosage of Euphorbia kansui Radix can induce several mild intestinal reactions but have no harmful effects on liver and kidney functions.

Conclusions:
Through this study, diarrhea-inducing treatment by less than 6 grams of Euphorbia kansui Radix can considered safe enough to be used in local clinics, but a cautious approach is needed.
Key words: Euphorbia kansui, Korean medical treatment, liver function, kidney function
