  The interest by the techniques related to the Traditional Medicine (TM) is evident and is increasing in the world. Moxibustion is a procedure used in the TM and has been used extensively in the Far East (Southeast Asia, China, India and Japan). We decided to evaluate the number of publications with moxibustion and to compare with the number of publications with a procedure widely used in the world, the therapeutic ultrasound. The searches were performed in PubMed ( in the 1964-2002 period and the number of publication per year was determined. The number is higher to ultrasound than to moxibustion. The percentage of the papers in which the ultrasound is indicated increase continuously. The percentage of the papers in which the moxibustion is indicated is small before 1984, after that, increases with a characteristic behavior. The searches difference could be explained due to (i) the publications in moxibustion would be in journals not indexed in PubMed, (ii) the stimulation to develop projects in well established subjects, as in ultrasound, (iii) the concentration of the research in moxibustion in specific groups and determined countries and (iv) some impressive results in moxibustion remain not translated.
