  • 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.

  • Recently, the incidence of pulmonary cryptococcosis is gradually increasing in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients. Pulmonary rheumatoid nodules (PRN) are rare manifestations of RA. Eighteen months ago, a 65-year old woman was admitted to hospital due to multiple nodules ( $2.5{\times}2.1{\times}2cm$) with cavitations in the right lower lobe. She was diagnosed with RA three year ago. She had been taking methotrexate, leflunomide, and triamcinolone. A video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery biopsy was performed and PRN was diagnosed. However, a newly growing huge opacity with cavitation was detected in the same site. Pulmonary cryptococcal infection was diagnosed through a transthoracic computed tomograpy guided needle biopsy. Cryptococcus antigen was detected in serum but not in cerebrospinal fluid. The patient was treated with oral fluconazole which resulted clinical improvement and regression of the nodule on a series of radiography. Herein, we report the case of pulmonary cryptococcosis occurring in the same location as that of the PRN.

  • Cholelithiasis and choledocholithiasis are uncommon pediatric diseases, although clinicians have seen them with increasing frequency in children in recent years. Moreover, no case of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection with cholelithiasis and choledocholithiasis has been previously reported in the English literature. We report a pediatric patient with EBV infection, a gall bladder stone, and a common bile duct stone, may have had GB and CBD stones prior to her EBV infection, whom we successfully treated with antibiotics and laparoscopic cholecystectomy for cholecystitis.
