Abstract: Approaches to Western disease treated with Chinese medicine include not only the thinking modality of TCM in the treatment of Western disease,but also relevant chinical and laboratory research on its efficacy and mechanism.The complexity and diversity of TCM treatment based on pattern identification together with non-standardized disease names of TCM affect how the approaches are formed. There are differences between these approaches and traditional treatment approaches in terms of method, objective, and use of formulas and herbs. Disease differentiation is primarily used with specific formula developed and modified for specific disease. The system of approaches still awaits further improvement and optimization so as to promote modernization of traditional Chinese medicine.

Key words: Western disease treated with Chinese medicine, treatment based on disease differentiation, standardized medical care
