Abstract: Principles for Formulating Prescriptions Based on Zang-Fu Organs, Origin and Superficiality, Deficiency and Excess, Cold and Heat Syndrome is one of ZHANG Yuansu’s famous masterpieces. With decades of clinical experience, ZHANG Yuansu summarized his own pathogenesis theory corresponding to Zang-Fu organs, cold and heat syndrome, deficiency and excess syndrome. In his efforts, the theory of differentiation based on Zang-Fu organs was appreciated by doctors of later ages. Conciseness of the prescription and the medication rules on treatment of TCM liver diseases recorded in this book was the fruit of the combination of inheritance of the Classic and his own theoretical innovation. The clinical thought of diagnosis and treatment, including grasping physiological function of zang-fu organs, understanding progression of diseases, tactfully using medicines of guiding action and leading to improving the curative effects, is still of great clinical significance up to now.

Key words: traditional Chinese medicine liver diseases, formulating prescription, differentiation based on Zang-Fu organs
