Abstract Individual differences of brain changes of neural communication and integration in the modular architecture of the human brain network exist for the repeated migraine attack and physical or psychological stressors. However, whether the interindividual variability in the migraine brain connectome predicts placebo response to placebo treatment is still unclear. Using DTI and graph theory approaches, we systematically investigated the topological organization of white matter networks in 71 patients with migraine without aura (MO) and 50 matched healthy controls at three levels: global network measure, nodal efficienc...

This is a case report of an occurrence of shingles (herpes zoster [HZ]) following auricular acupuncture. The patient developed acute reactivation HZ in the V1 distribution of the right trigeminal nerve involving the forehead, scalp, and medial upper eyelid 13 days after being treated with auricular acupuncture for chronic low-back pain. The lesions were initially painless, but they clustered and became painful within 2 days. The patient was treated with oral valacyclovir 1000 mg, 3 times daily for 7 days, and ibuprofen as needed. The lesions resolved without sequelae.
