Abstract We report a 39-year-old woman with premenopausal breast cancer who developed estrogen-deficiency symptoms associated with chemotherapy-related amenorrhea, and was successfully treated with Nyoshinsan/TJ-67, a Japanese traditional herbal medicine (Kampo). Six other breast cancer survivors with menopausal symptoms were also treated with Nyoshinsan/TJ-67, and five of the six patients showed noticeable improvement without adverse effects. Managing estrogen-deficiency symptoms in breast cancer survivors is still problematic, and Nyoshinsan/TJ-67 may be a useful and safe agent for such symptoms in these patients.
