A 50-year-old man presented with multiple, circular, erythematous lesions over his back (figure). Each lesion measured 5 cm in diameter and most comprised blisters containing straw coloured fluid. The patient had a long-standing history of low back pain and had visited a herbalist in mainland China who applied multiple suction flasks over his back. The therapy lasted for over 2 h but was abandoned because of excruciating pain. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been practised in Hong Kong as a major alternative medicine. Many patients still receive TCM treatment from amateur practitioners and experience peculiar complications such as heavy metal poisoning, aplastic anaemia, chylothorax, and in this case, suction burns. The elusive scientific basis and paucity of systematic training programmes in TCM required to maintain high professional standards are problems that need to be addressed.
