Objective: This study is designed to evaluate the effects of Korean medicine treatment for facial nerve palsy. Method: The patient was administered Korean medicine treatment, including acupuncture, pharmacopuncture, and herbal medicine. We used the House-Brackmann Grading System and Yanagihara's Unweighted Grading System to assess the symptoms of facial nerve palsy. Results: The patient's House-Brackmann grade was reduced from grade IV to grade II, and Yanagihara's grade was increased from 19 to 32. The patient's symptoms, which were facial pain, facial asymmetry, reduced wrinkling forehead, incomplete closing eye, epiphora, and tinnitus, improved during the hospitalization. Conclusion: This study shows that Korean medicine treatment may be an effective treatment for facial nerve palsy.
