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

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).

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).

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
