Abstract
If the proximal portion of the fourth segment of the vertebral onery is occluded before the posterior inferior cerebellar artery branch, ischemia usually affects the lateral medulla oblongata or the ipsilateral side of the cerebellum. The lateral medullary syndrome(wallenberg syndrome) resulting from occlusion in this area is common. 62 years old male who has swallowing difficulty, dizziness and diagnosed as the lateral medullary syndrome(wallenberg syndrome) is admitted in Wonkwang university oriental medical hospital Kwangju. We have diagnosed him as Taeumin and treated by east integrated therapy. We classified this as Taenmin-liyoiljung(������ ������) and prescribed chungsimyoinjatang(���������) to the principle of cheongganjoyoil(��������). In the result, we had the improvement of the symptoms. This report described the process and contents about the way the patient was cured.
