Abstract: Objective Through retrospective study of latest 20 years’ modern literature related to common hand-foot-mouth disease, the distribution of pattern elements and the relationship between common patterns and corresponding symptoms / signs were analyzed, so as to provide the basis for standardization of TCM pattern differentiation for hand-foot-mouth disease. Methods “hand-foot-mouth disease” OR“hand-foot-mouth” AND “pattern” OR“Chinese medicine” were used as subject words in CNKI,Wanfang and VIP database to retrieve the relevant literature. Search Results were input to establish the standard database by using Epidata 3.0 software, then frequency of symptoms, pattern and pattern elements logistic regression analysis were analyzed by SPSS 17.0. Results The leading symptoms and signs of common hand-foot-mouth disease were rash, fever and anorexia. The common patterns were damp-heat pattern of lung and spleen, pattern of stagnation and steaming of damp-heat and pattern of pathogen invading lung-defense phase. The disease-locations with high frequency were lung, spleen and defense and the disease-natures with high frequency were damp-heat and heat. After Logistic regression analysis, the symptoms/signs of damp-heat pattern of lung and spleen were slobbering and purple venule of index finger, those of pattern of stagnation and steaming of damp-heat were thick tongue coating, high fever and dark, thick venule of index finger, and those of pattern of pathogen invading lung-defense phase were running nose and cough. Conclusion The common patterns types of common hand-foot-mouth disease were damp-heat pattern of lung and spleen, pattern of stagnation and steaming of damp-heat and pattern of pathogen invading lung-defense phase. And the common location elements were lung, spleen and defense with the common nature elements of damp-heat and heat.

Key words: hand-foot-mouth disease, symptoms, pattern, pattern elements, Logistic regression analysis
