controlled trials reporting some therapeutic effects, but for which acupuncture
is worth trying because treatment by conventional and other therapies is
difficult:

25 Acupuncture: review and analysis of controlled clinical trials
Colour blindness
Deafness
Hypophrenia
Irritable colon syndrome
Neuropathic bladder in spinal cord injury
Pulmonary heart disease, chronic

4. Diseases, symptoms or conditions for which acupuncture may be tried provided the practitioner has special modern medical knowledge and adequate monitoring equipment:

Breathlessness in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
Coma
Convulsions in infants
Coronary heart disease (angina pectoris)
Diarrhoea in infants and young children
Encephalitis, viral, in children, late stage

More evidence on effectiveness of acupuncture

Review of most up-to-date evidence found more clinical research evidence supporting the effectiveness of acupuncture compared to previous reviews. The level of evidence has increased over the 11-year period of this study for 24 conditions. Furthermore, it was found that placebo-controlled clinical trials consistently underestimated the true effect size of acupuncture, which means that acupuncture is more effective than the type of trials used in this review show.
