Abstract: In recent years, with the acceleration of life pace and the improvement of living standards, the incidence of acne has increased year by year, with an increasingly more complicated pathogenesis. From the perspective of body constitution, modern medical practitioners have combined the differentiation of constitution, disease and pattern to explore a new approach in its diagnosis and treatment. Studies revealed that in patients with acne, the proportion of qi deficiency constitution had gradually increased. Thus, in this study, in order to improve the efficacy of treatment of patients with qi deficiency constitution, pattern differentiation for patients with acne was explored, as well as the theories on qi deficiency constitution. On basis of that, the survey results of qi deficiency constitution, and the experience of diagnosing and treating acne from the perspective of qi deficiency constitution were summarized. Thus, it was concluded that there were important clinical basis and therapeutic advantages to treat acne from the perspective of qi deficiency constitution.

Key words: qi deficiency constitution, acne, theory, therapy
