1.Abdominal cyst
Name: Ma xx
Date: 1998-08-21
The 1-month-old female presented with a history of frequent vomit, abdominal distension and fever of 2 days. At her mother's 32nd week of gestation, the Ultrasonic B had already showed a cyst existing in the fetus's abdomen. At 1 month of age, she was taken to The Second Affiliated Hospital of Chinese Medcial University because of the symptoms mentioned above. The MRI scan showed a cyst(4.9cm x 4.8cm x 4.8cm) in her lower right flank which led to the ileus. Her amilies didn't want the infant to take an operation, so they brought her to take Tuina massage. After inquiring we learned that her mother had taken a lot of watermelon in pregnancy. In Traditional Chinese Medcine(TCM), watermelon can clear away the heat of body and taking too much watermelon will damage the yang of spleen and kidney which will lead to the retention of fluid dampness. So became the cyst. We need to warm the kidney and invigorate the spleen, promote the flow of qi and activate yang. We seleced Prescription No.102. After 1 day of tuina massage, her hands and feet turned from cool to warm,the vomiting and distension mended, and she took more milk and didn't cry so much. The second noon she passed a lot of stool and her abdominal distension was gone. Then we performed Prescription No.90. One week later the cyst became softer than before. And forty days later, the ultrasonic scan showed the cyst disappeared and only a trail of its hull was left. A friend of this family, a director of Shenyang No.202 Hospital who had examined the infant before, after reading the report of scan and examined the baby himself, said, "It's utterly impossible to heal only treated by Tuina,they must have give her herbs or accupuncture when you left her." The families of the baby insisted that they had been staying with her all the time,it did heal through tuina massage. Afterward the child took another half a month of Tuina to confirm. To this day,the cyst haven't relapsed.

The 15-year-old girl pesented with a history of a ingravescence of hoarseness of 3 months. Three months before she came, she took an operation because of her patent ductus arteriosus under general anaesthesia in Shengyang General Hospital of Army. After the operation her voice became more and more hoarse. Two days before she came she was told that there was a granulation growing beside the root of right vocal cord by the doctor of the ENT department of that hospital and was suggested another operation. Her parents were afraid that the operation would damage the vocal cords and the operation couldn't prevent the relapse as well, so they brought her to take tuina massage. Wheh she came she could hardly let out her voice. Her tongue was red and her pulse was powerful, so it must be the injure of bronchial insertion which led to the obstruction of qi and blood in the local place. So we selected Prescription No.2 to massage. After the first time of tuina, her hoarseness was almost gone. After half a month the photo taken by laryngoscope showed the granulation had reduced a bit. Then we performed Prescription No.74 for another 2 weeks. The photo taken by laryngoscope showed the tumor had reduced obviously. But the doctor of N0.201 Hospital of Liaoyang insisted the change of the size of the granulation was caused by the difference of angles. After another 3 weeks, photo by laryngoscope showed that not only the granulation has disappeared but also a pit appeared there. The director insisted she must have taken a laser treatment. And after the child's mother promised that she hadn't taken it, the director said it's maybe a blood dunk. Another 3 weeks passed, she took a laryngoscope examination again. A lady ENT told her that the focus had already been stabilized.

He had taken the ultrasonic scan in the Third People's Hospital of Liaoyang and was confirmed a solid tumor, but its character was not clear yet. We selected Prescription No.45. In the first week of tuina massage, the tumor reduced to the half size of the original. But in the second week it didn't reduced so fast and he slobbered much more than before.

We noticed his neck was straight, when he needed to look he dared not to move his neck, he had to look depending on moving his whole body and eyeballs. So he seemed very droll. We noticed his had a blue complexion, so we deduced his symptoms were due to a fright and cerebral concussion. We selected Prescription No.28 and No.113 to massage.

She went to the First Affiliated Hospital of Chinese Medical University and took a ECG which showed arrhythmia.

The girl had a darkish complexion and sweated while sleeping after she got ill. Her stool wasn't loose but passed frequently than before. She felt pain in her throat and her tonsils were red and swollen. We deduced she was suffering the inward sinking of rubella due to inadequate vital-qi.

So we stopped tuina and enjoined her to rest at home, avoid chill, affright and lavishing drugs. Several days later her rubella had come out completely and isappeared naturally. Her symptoms were gone also.
