Sir,

I read the recent report on a rare case with concurrent intracranial hemorrhage and cerebellar infarction following acupuncture by Heo et al. with great interest. [1] I agree with their conclusion that "the acupuncturists and patients undergoing acupuncture should be aware of the potential lethal acupuncture-related complications." However, the relationship between acupuncture and neurological complication in this case is still doubtful. The assumption that there might have been injury to the vertebral artery is interesting. There should be some signs and symptoms of such injury. It is very rare that there is no acute presentation of this injury.
