Objective： To study the clinical and prognostic effects of Buyang Huanwu Decoction in the treatment of peripheral facial paralysis（ PFP） patients with peripheral facial paralysis combined with asymptomatic cerebral infarction（ ACI）. Methods： A total of 60 cases of patients of PFP with ACI who were admitted and treated in Fuxing Hospital Affiliated to Capital University of Medical Sciences from August 2012 to August 2015 were randomly divided into the observation group and the control group,with 30 cases in each group. Patients in the control group were treated with western medicine therapy,and patients in the treatment group were given Buyang Huanwu Decoction. The curative effects were compared between the two groups after 2 months treatment,and the results of CT were reviewed. The facial nerve function score（ MHBN） was observed before and after treatment. Results： The cure rate and total effective rate of observation group were 33. 33% and 96. 67%,respectively,compared with the control group of 10. 00%,73. 22%,which were significantly higher and the difference was statistically significant（ P〈0. 05）. After treatment,CT showed that the rates of density of the lesions and the area of the lesions decreased more than 1/2 were 96. 67% and 70. 00%,respectively,compared with the control group of 70. 00%,46. 67%,which were significantly higher and the difference was statistically significant（ P〈0. 05）. The MHBN score after treatment in two groups were significantly improved compared with before treatment,and the MHBN score in the observation group was significantly higher than that in the control group. The difference was statistically significant（ P〈0. 05）. Conclusion： The effects of Buyang Huanwu Decoction in the treatment of patients with PFP combined with ACI were significant,which can help to improve the clinical symptoms and was worthy to be recommended.
