ABSTRACT
Objectives:
This study reports on two cases of the clinical application of traditional Korean medicine on stroke patients with hemi-spatial neglect.

Methods:
We applied several traditional Korean medicine treatments and then evaluated the patients’ symptoms with Albert’s test, the clock-drawing test (CDT), the Catherine Bergego scale (CBS), and the numeric rating scale (NRS).

Results:
The scores of all of the scales showed improvement. In case 1, the Albert’s test score decreased from 2.5% to 0%, the CDT score increased from 6 to 10, and the CBS score decreased from 16 to 11. In case 2, the Albert’s test score decreased from 5% to 2.5%, the CDT score increased from 3 to 6, and the CBS score decreased from 23 to 16.

Conclusion:
We found that acupuncture, moxibustion, herbal medicine, and physical therapy appeared to be effective treatments for hemi-spatial neglect in these two stroke patients.
