Angioma

 

Case 2

Xia, male, age: 29

 

Case history

The patient had been suffering from a 4cm x 3cm soft lump on the left side of the neck for about one month. The color of the skin at the affected part did not changed. The lump became smaller when it was pressed, and it did not move when the patient swallowed things. In 1982, a puncture was carried out and fresh blood was drawn out at the Affiliated Shuguang Hospital, Shanghai College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The ultrasonic scanning indicated a cystic mass.

 

Diagnosis

Angioma

 

Treatment

He consulted Dr. Xia Shaonong at the Affiliated Shuguang Hospital, Shanghai College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The patient's symptoms were found to include reddened tongue with scanty coating and thready and rapid pulse. These symptoms were caused by deficiency of qi and yin, accumulation of heat, and disturbance in the Chong and Ren meridians. Appropriate treatment involved focusing on benefiting qi and replenishing yin, cooling blood and activating blood circulation, and regulating the Chong and Ren meridians.

 

Xiashi Xueguanliu Fang (Xia's Formula for Angioma) was prescribed. The ingredients were as follows:

 

astragalus root 30g

glabrous greenbrier rhizome 30g

rehmannia root 12g

glehnia root 15g

anomalous artemisia 15g

epimedium 15g

tree peony bark 10g

arnebia root 10g

climbing nightshade 20g

figwort root 6g

 

Other ingredients were added as follows:

 

chuanxiong root 10g

red peony root 10g

white peony root 10g

prepared flatsedge tuber 10g

selfheal spike 12g

 

The ingredients were made into a herbal decoction for oral consumption, one dose per day.

 

The herbal decoction was taken for a half month, and the tumor got smaller. After 43 doses of the decoction were taken, the tumor disappeared. After another 24 doses were administered, the patient's condition became stable, which indicated that he had been cured.

 

Remarks

In Western medicine, there are many ways to treat angioma, but side effect always occurs and there is some limitation. Take the following for examples: cold therapy is only suitable for capillary angioma; sclerosing agent is only suitable for small cavernous hemangioma; incision, after which relapses tend to occur, may cause massive hemorrhage; radiotherapy impedes local bone growth of infant; while hormone brings about side effect and is not advisable to be taken in large amount. If traditional Chinese therapy is adopted, though the patient need to take medicines in a comparatively longer period, finally a radical cure is often achieved with less side effect being found.

 

Dr. Xia contended that the patient's disease was triggered by failure of qi to command blood, deficiency of yin, heat in blood, and accumulated toxins in the body. He found that when herbs to reinforce qi and replenish yin were administered, the effective rate was 84.8 percent, and the curative rate was six percent. Then he added other medicines acting to regulate the Chong and Ren meridians to invigorate yang and generate yin, by this means, the effective rate and curative rate increased to 90.4 percent and 21.15 percent respectively.

 

In the formula, astragalus root, glehnia root, rehmannia root and figwort root were administered to reinforce qi and replenish yin; tree peony bark, arnebia root and anomalous artemisia cooled blood and resolved blood stasis; glabrous greenbrier rhizome and climbing nightshade cleared away heat and toxins; epimedium invigorated kidney-yang and regulated the Chong and Ren meridians; flatsedge tuber, chuanxiong root, red peony root and white peony root promoted the flow of qi and blood; while selfheal spike cleared away heat and dissipated lumps. This formula is especially effective when it is used to treat congenital angioma caused by insufficiency of kidney-yang and kidney-yin.
