Case Report

Prolonged bleeding on the neck in leech therapy: Case report

Atakan Savrun, Selim Bozkurt, Mehmet Okumus, Emre Gokcen, Murat Turkaslan.

Superficial skin bleeding can usually be stopped by applying short-time compression, unless the patient suffers from coagulation disorders or uses anticoagulant. Because of the anticoagulant component of leech saliva, a leech bite may cause long-time bleeding, which cannot be stopped via compression. In this study, the case of a patient who applied leech therapy on her neck for the treatment of migraine has been presented.

Key words: Bleeding, headache, leech bite
