ABSTRACT
Objectives:
This study presents two cases of patients with post-stroke global aphasia who were treated with scalp acupuncture with electrical stimulation.


Method:
The two patients were treated by scalp acupuncture with electrical stimulation six times a week. The degree of aphasia was measured via the Korean version of the western aphasia battery (K-WAB).

Results:
After treatment, aphasia was improved in both cases (autism-spectrum quotient [AQ] scores increased from 13.7 to 37.1 and from 4.1 to 18.4 in the two patients).

Conclusion:
Based on the results of these two cases, scalp acupuncture could be effective in treating post-stroke global aphasia.
Key words: aphasia, stroke, scalp acupuncture
