AB  - RATIONALE: Dysphagia following stroke is a major complaint among patients, and
      effective treatment of post-stroke dysphagia can be difficult. We present a case 
      report describing a new treatment for dysphagia, namely, quick needle insertion
      at pharyngeal acupoints. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 70-year-old man developed pharyngeal
      dysphagia after a stroke. Three months after the patient experienced a sudden
      stroke leading to liquid dysphagia, acupuncture, one of the most important
      therapies in Traditional Chinese Medicine, was used to treat the patient.
      DIAGNOSES: A diagnosis of cerebral infarction and bulbar paralysis was made.
      INTERVENTIONS: Quick needle insertion was performed at five pharyngeal acupoints,
      once a day, 6 times a week for 6 weeks. OUTCOMES: The patient subsequently showed
      significant improvement in the pharyngeal phase of swallowing. His performance in
      the drinking water test reduced to level 1 from level 4. The functional oral
      intake scale score changed from level 2 to level 7. In the video fluoroscopic
      swallowing study, no spillage occurred, but aspiration was present. The residue
      of the contrast agent was reduced. LESSONS: Quick needle insertion at pharyngeal 
      acupoints can be an efficient way to treat post-stroke dysphagia.
