Abstract
Buffalo hump is a manifestation of Cushing's syndrome. Herb medicine is popular in Korea, and it might cause Cushing's syndrome. Using power-assisted liposuction device, we treated a woman with buffalo hump deformity due to herb medication for 2 years. The histologic study of hump was normal fat cell. So, the hump can be removed easily using liposuction, and it may be an effective method to treat the facial and cervical deformity in Cushing's syndrome.
Key Words: Cushing's syndrome, Hurb, Buffalo hump, Liposuction
