Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To compare therapeutic effects of acupuncture on complicated facial paralysis in the patient with HIV/AIDS and in the patient with no HIV/AIDS.

METHODS

The observation group of 31 cases of facial paralysis with positive HIV/AIDS and the control group of 30 cases of facial paralysis with negative HIV/AIDS were treated with acupuncture at Yifeng (TE 17), Xiaguan (ST 7), Jiache (ST 6), Taiyang (EX-HN 5), Dicang (ST 4), Yuyao (EX-HN 4), Cuanzhu (BL 2), Yingxiang (LI 20), etc. and with individual treatment according to different periods of disease. The difference of therapeutic effects between the two groups were observed.

RESULTS

The effective rate was 83.9% in the observation group and 96.7% in the control group, with no significant difference between the two groups; while the cured rate was 9.7% in the observation group and 73.3% in the control group with a very significant difference between the two groups (P < 0.01).

CONCLUSION

Acupuncture with individual treatment has a satisfactory therapeutic effect on complicated facial paralysis in the patient of HIV/AIDS.
