This case report examines the effects of Jaeumganghwa-tang as a treatment option for Sjögren’s syndrome.

We provided the patient with Jaeumganghwa-tang twice a day, as well as acupuncture and bee venom therapy (both twice a week), for 30 days. Symptoms were charted and evaluated using the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) Sjögren’s Syndrome Patient Reported Index (ESSPRI).

The patient’s ESSPRI score decreased from 8 to 6 after the 30-day treatment.

Jaeumganghwa-tang may be helpful in alleviating Sjögren’s syndrome.
Key words: Sjögren’s syndrome, Jaeumganghwa-tang, Korean traditional medicine
