[Telethermographic evaluation of the use of acupuncture in fibrocystic dysplasia in the painful phase]
With this preliminary note the writers propose an objective documentation of acupuncture's effects in fibrocystic mastopathia during the painful phase, using thermography. Five patients have been treated with the following points: 6R, 5MP, 6MP, 4F all in the same session. In four cases clinic remission of symptoms and syntomatic change of the thermography picture have been obtained. In the treated cases menstruations have always been remarked in advance.
