ABSTRACT
Objective:
The aim of this study was to report the effect of Korean medicine treatment on Claude's syndrome with ataxia and diplopia.

Methods:
We applied electroacupuncture, scalp acupuncture, and physical therapy to the patient. Diplopia was assessed with the distance between two images of one object, and ataxia was assessed with the Korean Version of the Scale for the Assessment and Rating of Ataxia (K-SARA).

Results:
After 21 days of treatment, diplopia, abnormal extraocular movement, and ataxia were improved on the basis of the K-SARA score.

Conclusion:
This case demonstrates the effectiveness of Korean medicine treatment in improving the symptoms of Claude's syndrome.
Key words: Claude’s syndrome, midbrain infarction, electro-acupuncture, Korean medicine, case report
