ABSTRACT
Objective:
This study addressed a case of central post-stroke pain described as right arm painful with coldness and left lateral medullary infarction.

Methods:
A patient, 71 years old female with medullary infarction, was treated with a Korean herbal medication (BackJun-pill). The improvement of symptoms was evaluated using the Numeral Rating Scale and reports of coldness and pain in the affected areas. We also measured the body temperature difference between the left and right arms using digital infrared thermographic imaging (DITI).

Results:
After six weeks of treatment with Korean medicine, the patient’s pain and sensation of coldness decreased.

Conclusions:
This clinical case study suggests that BackJun-pill may be effective for alleviating pain and coldness due to central post-stroke pain.
Key words: central post-stroke pain, painful coldness, BackJun-Pill, Korean medicine
