Case Number 70
This case focuses on the differentiation and treatment of a disorder with the main symptom of uninterrupted vomiting. Xu provides no details about the patient and list no additional symptoms besides the vomiting. He does say that other doctors sweated her, a reasonable treatment for this disorder, but it caused her to vomit continually. Moreover, although the doctors attempted to stop the vomiting using standard therapy, they failed. Xu claims that the approach of the other doctors was flawed since they were unaware of remnant heat pathogen. He administered two rather rare formulas, both recorded for the first time during the Song. Although Xu does not take up this issue, sweating a pathogen of internal origin would worsen the condition of the patient, as in this case.
