Abstract: Disease-syndrome is a frequently used term in clinical Chinese medicine. Disease-syndromes are body’s abnormal states affected by pathogenic factors with the same basic pathology, which are classified under the guidance of traditional Chinese medicine theory. Basic pathology is essential for the classification of disease-syndromes. It is the internal stable connection among all elements in disease-syndrome, and reflects and runs through the whole progress of disease-syndrome. In addition, basic pathology is also the internal basis used for determining the main symptoms of disease-syndromes and the laws for diagnosis and treatment in Chinese medicine. The implication of disease-syndrome is different from disease, syndrome and symptom. To properly understand the implication of disease-syndrome has a contribution to summarizing the previous clinical experience and guiding the clinical practice.

Key words: disease-syndrome, syndrome, basic pathogenesis
