Case Number 59

  • Asaf Goldschmidt
Chapter
Part of the Archimedes book series (ARIM, volume 54)

Abstract

In this case Xu Shuwei brings to the fore the discussion concerning Cold Damage disorders of the Immature Yang type. He explains why another doctor misdiagnosed the patient as ill from that disorder and he states what symptoms differentiate such a case. This patient, like others in previous cases, is suffering from excessive sweating. He administered medicines to the patient without explaining why. It seems that he is more intent on discussing the differential diagnosis of Cold Damage of the Immature Yang than on discussing therapy for it.
