ABSTRACT
Objective:
This study aimed to report a case of alcoholic liver disease with jaundice that was improved with Korean medicine treatment.

Methods:
A patient who developed jaundice due to continuous drinking was treated with herbal medicine, acupuncture, moxibustion, and cupping. Blood tests were performed to measure the levels of aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), gamma glutamyl transpeptidase (γ-GTP), total bilirubin, albumin, and total protein; AST/ALT ratio; and mean corpuscular volume (MCV). Jaundice parameters were subjectively recorded at 3-day intervals.

Results:
After treatment, the AST, ALT, ALP, γ-GTP, and total bilirubin levels; MCV; and jaundice were decreased.

Conclusion:
Korean medicine treatment appeared to be an effective method for alcoholic liver disease with jaundice.
Key words: alcoholic liver disease, jaundice, Korean medicine
