Therapeutic Effect of Oral Administration and External Therapy of Traditional Chinese Medicine on Cervical Tuberculous

Abstract

Objective: To analyze the clinical effect and value of oral administration and external therapy of traditional Chinese medicine for treatment of cervical tuberculous lymphadenopathy. Methods: A total of 56 patients with cervical tuberculous lymphadenopathy admitted to our hospital from January 1 to January 2018 were recruited. By using double-blind method, the patients were divided into control group (n=28) and experimental group (n=28). Control group comprised of patients with conventional anti-tuberculosis treatment, while the experimental group comprised of patients treated with oral administration and external therapy of traditional Chinese medicine. Total effective rate, incidence of complication and level of T lymphocyte subsets were compared between the two groups of cervical tuberculous lymphadenopathy patients. Results: Post-treatment data of total effective rate, complication rate, CD3+, CD4+, CD8+, CD4+/CD8+ of the experimental group were compared with the control group. P<0.05; statistical analysis showed statistical significance. Post-treatment data of CD3+, CD4+, CD8+, CD4+/CD8+ of both control and experimental groups were compared with pre-treatment data. P<0.05; statistical analysis showed statistical significance. Conclusion: Oral administration and external therapy of traditional Chinese medicine possesses significant effect in treatment of cervical tuberculous lymphadenopathy.
