Our report is about a 30 year old female with a small palpable mass 3 to 4 human inches proximal to the right knee articulation on the anterolateral aspect of the femur. The patient reported a traumatic injury to this area approximately 60 days earlier.

On March 8,1993, the patient was treated with the qigong therapy for the first time over the area of trauma for 10 minutes. She subjectively reported a 'warm feeling' over the area and also a 'tingling and warmness' extending down her right leg. She returned for treatment on March 17,1993, and reported an 8-day relative absence of pain even with an increase in activity. She now is on a 3-week schedule of therapy and is progressing well.
