Abstract
Hwabyung is a culture-bound anger syndrome in Korea. It manifests as one or more of a wide range of physical symptoms, in response to emotional stress. This case describes a 26-year old woman diagnosed as Hwabyung by HBDIS. She complained chiefly of binge eating and sleep disorder. She also complained of chest discomfort, abdominal discomfort, foreign body sensation in the throat, burning sensation and so on. We treated the patient with herbal medication, acupuncture, cupping, and moxa. After treatment, her condition improved. Standardized patients (SP) were used in teaching and practicing interviewing and physical examination skills for This report suggests that traditional Korean treatment such as herbal medication, acupuncture, cupping, moxa is effective for the treatment of Hwabyung patients.
