Multiple Burns Associated with the Alternative Treatment: Cupping Therapy

Abdullah Algin, Irfan Aydin, Hilmi Sen, Mehmet Kaan Poyraz.

Abstract
Background: The cupping process fundamentally includes producing a compact section of low air pressure beside the epidermis. This therapy gained credibility within some biomedical health care centers in Turkey.
Case Presentation: The 57-year-old woman applied to our emergency polyclinic with complaints of painful back and second-degree multiple burns. The case had six different burned areas with similar sizes. In her history, she had taken medication and that symptom did not improve. On the proposition of its neighbors, she attempted a single method called “Cupping“ among the public, by placing a piece of paper burned with fire into a wide tea cup and placing it on his back, for a few times.
Conclusion: Burns as a result of cupping are avoidable, and thereby the initial stage is improving the consciousness of the community and medical treatment specialists of the liability of those wounds. We expect the case presentation will contribute in improving consciousness of the risks included in the treatment of cupping.

Key words: Complementary medicine, cupping treatment, back pain
