ABSTRACT
Objectives:
The purpose of this study was to investigate a case of a patient with spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA) type 2 whose condition improved following treatment with Korean medicine.

Methods:
A 25-year-old man, diagnosed with SCA type 2, was treated with herbal medicine (Yukmijiwhang-tang-gami), acupuncture, and physical treatment. The therapeutic effect was evaluated using the Berg Balance Scale (BBS) and gait status.

Results:
Following treatment, the BBS score increased, and gait ataxia improved.

Conclusions:
This case study suggests that Korean medicine could be effective for relieving symptoms of SCA type 2.
Key words: SCA type 2, Spinocerebellar Ataxia, Yukmijiwhang-tang-gami, case report, Ataxia
