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.

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.

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

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
