The concept of oriental medicine is according to the Yin-Yang Doctrine and the Five Elements theory which is based on oriental philosophy. Traditionally, doctors of oriental medicine have practiced by feeling pulses for diagnosis, acupuncturing, and prescribing herbal medicine for treatment. Nowadays, however, most oriental doctors are having hard time in managing their own clinics by progressive worsening of the medical environment, because the numbers of patients are absolutely decreasing, but the numbers of oriental clinics are relatively increasing. Therefore, they are intending to overcome the difficulties by enlarging their field of medical treatment in various aspects, and introducing treatment remedies including unreasonable or unproved methods, especially into the field of dermatology. Here we present a case of multiple scarring of the face following removal of pigmented nevi by acupuncture in an oriental clinic. We report this case to emphasize the necessity of understanding the current status of dermatologic treatments conducted in oriental clinics, and to inform the dangerousness and correct medical information to the public
