Abstract: Objective Based on the distribution rules of TCM patterns of bronchogenic carcinoma patients at first visit, the correlation between TCM patterns and bronchoscopy manifestation was studied to attempt to expand the TCM theory of Microscopic Syndrome Differentiation in the field of bronchoscopy. Methods Before treatment, 176 patients were diagnosed using TCM Four Diagnostic Methods. Then the distribution of TCM patterns was got by using cluster analysis and factor analysis. 98 of 176 patients undergoing bronchoscopy were further studied to find out the correlation between their TCM patterns and bronchoscopy manifestation. Results The leading patterns of primary bronchogenic carcinoma were deficiency of qi and yin (35.2%), qi stagnation, blood stasis with dampness retention (24.4%), qi deficiency with phlegm-dampness (22.2%), yin deficiency(18.2 %). There were statistical differences of bronchoscopy manifestation in different patterns (P<0.05)—hyperplasia in pattern of qi deficiency with phlegm-dampness and pattern of qi stagnation, blood stasis with dampness retention, infiltration in pattern of yin deficiency and pattern of deficiency of qi and yin. Conclusion The differences of bronchoscopy manifestation in different TCM patterns were proved.
