Abstract: This paper discusses the relationship with the manifestations of granulomatous lobular mastitis and phlegm dampness constitution in traditional Chinese medicine based on the “phlegm pathogen causing diseases” and features of phlegm pathogen. The clinical manifestations of granulomatous lobular mastitis are varied. Phlegm is involved in the whole process of granulomatous lobular mastitis. The authors conclude that granulomatous lobular mastitis is a mass disease caused mainly by phlegm affecting the skin. In clinical practice, diagnosis should be focused on phlegm, treating the kidney, spleen and liver. The combination of pattern diagnosis and constitution differentiation could ensure a better clinical efficacy. This paper could be used as references for the theory development and clinical treatment of granulomatous lobular mastitis.

Key words: granulomatous lobular mastitis, phlegm pathogen causing disease, disease development
