A Study on Wi Syndrome(痿證) in "Hwangjenaegyeong(黃帝內經).Wiron(痿論)"
Baek, Yu-Sang ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 1~10
Wi Syndrome(痿證) mainly occurs from fluid damages[津液損傷] caused by heat in Gi(氣) phase of the Five viscera, while it sometimes come from the outside. Although the symptoms are presented in the limbs, the disorder roots in the Five viscera, most deeply located in the human body, Therefore, to approach the disorder, we must apply differentiation of the Five viscera in diagnosis. The Lungs, as the head of the Five viscera control the production and distribution of bodily fluids in the body. Functional disorder of the Lungs bring about Wi Syndrome regardless of it being in the Gi phase. Also, psychological depression leads to Wi Syndrome, In other words, depression and uneasiness easily results in the state of Gi blocking and fluid exhaustion in this modern society where there is less manual labor and excessive use of the brain. Besides Gi blockage, the top muscle[宗筋] theory is another important mechanism in the occurrence of Wi Syndrome. Moreover, the disorder is related to Yangmyeong(陽明), which is the sea of food, Chungmaek(衝脈) which is the sea of meridian, in addition to Immaek(任脈), Dokmeak (督脈) and Deameak(帶脈) which are all involved in Wi Syndrome. In conclusion, the Wi Syndrome happens when various factors involved lose balance and harmony with each other.
Analysis of the concept of body fluid in "Hwangjenaegyeong(黃帝內經)"
Feng, Gu ; Kim, Hyo-Chul ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 11~13
In this article, the concept of body fluid is explained in three aspects: the word meaning of body fluid, the origins of the definitions of the body fluid concept and the connotation and extension of body fluid. Investigating data about the time Hwangjenaegyeong(黃帝內經) was written, the author discovers that the meaning of "Aek(液)" is clear, but there are still questions about the meaning of "Jin(津)". The concept of body fluid derived from observation of life phenomenon and ancient philosophy on the "water". The concept of body fluid should be expressed as that body fluid is a general term for all normal liquids in the body. Within the meridians, as the composition of blood components; outside the meridians, constituting the intrinsic body fluids of various organs and tissues. This is the main part of body fluid, coming from diet, constituting the human body and maintaining human life activities, playing the roles of moistening and nourishing various of organs and tissues of the body. In addition, Interstitial fluid, all kinds of normal liquid secretion and metabolic products, such as sweat, tears, nasal discharge, saliva, slobber, gastric juice, intestinal fluid, urine, joint fluid, latex and so on, both belong to body fluid.
Limitation of the Five Viscera Correlation Theory and the Five Phase Theory
Cui, Ming-Hua ; Cui, Zheng-Zhi ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 15~19
Five phase theory has significant effect on Traditional Chinese Medicine, which puts its emphasis on correlation and integrity. However, the five phase theory itself has a limitation that it cannot reflect the general correlation and special features of affairs. Traditional Chinese Medicine pertains the five organs to five elements, absorbing the essence of the five phase theory, and transcending the limitation of the five phase theory in practice. Therefore, Traditional Chinese Medicine and other traditional medicine theories can be called as "five viscera correlation theory". On the course of modernization of traditional medicine, the effects among the five viscera can be concluded to 3 correlations of promotion, coordination and inhibition, to illustrate the integrity and correlation theory of traditional medicine from different approaches.

Park, Sang-Young ; Han, Chang-Huyn ; Ahn, Sang-Young ; Kwon, Oh-Min ; Ahn, Sang-Woo ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 31~46
This research is aimed at contriving to expand to its base on the research work Military medicine in East Asia by introducing GunjungUihak(means Military medicine) and adding translations and commentaries to it and propagating to academic circles. GunjungUihak is the only technical book on GunjungUihak which was written for the purpose of treating soldiers in time of war. One of the characteristics shown in its prescription is convenience in medical treatment; the writer of GunjungUihak Wangmyeonghak(王鳴學) edited pills and a powdered medicine to be prescribed in large proportions so that they could be used urgently in the situation of battles at a viewpoint of a general while collecting knowledge of medicine. In addition, this book is compiled with a very short edition with one volume and 18 units. Including only a little amount in the book means that it was compiled by extracting only the contents needed in preparation for the wartime emergency, and such a measure was taken for military surgeons to carry it with facility during the time of war. In addition, much weight of this book was given to the diseases caused by environment with which soldiers came in contact in time of combat, not the wounds by the weapons of war as specified from the beginning of the book, which suggests that the environmental factor of the friendly forces was much more threatening than the arms of enemy troops in the situation of a combat. Like this, GunjungUihak is a material of great value in that it is showing a model of the aspects of Military medicine in East Asia at that time even in its fragmentary writings and it has been preserved by Korea.
The study on the Paeoniae Radix Alba's efficacy in "Sanghanron(傷寒論)" prescription
Bang, Jung-Kyun ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 47~58
"Sanghanron(傷寒論)" can be approached through the understanding of the formulas. It is very important to correlate the efficacy of drugs and pathogenesis of syndrome. In this sense, the author examines the Paeoniae Radix Alba's efficacy. The Paeoniae Radix Alba[芍藥] used in Gyejitang(桂枝湯), Galgeuntang(葛根湯), Sogeonjungtang (小建中湯), Jagyakgamchotang(芍藥甘草湯) all have a similar effect. The Paeoniae Radix Alba supplies the tendon and blood meridian with bodily fluids, so it treats the stiffness and pain of the head and neck[頭項强痛], stiffness of the neck and back[項背强几几] and acute pain in the abdomen[腹中急痛] etc. Meanwhile, the Paeoniae Radix Alba treats difficulty in urination. It moistens the path to the excretion of urine included among drugs which increase digestion and transformation.
The Comparative Study of the Nominal Terms between "Biwiron(脾胃論)" and "Soayakjeungjikgyeol(小兒藥證直訣)"
Kim, Min-Gun ; Lee, Byung-Wook ; Kim, Eun-Ha ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 59~79
Objective : We did a comparative study about characteristics of oriental medical books. As a result, we took notice of classification in the nominal terms by semantic type of UMLS(Unified Medical Language System). By using classified nominal terms, comparative study can be more effectively. So, we selected another oriental medical book and classified nominal terms in it by semantic type of UMLS. By result of classification, we have attempted to study about comparison between oriental medical books and development of medical theories. Method :We have made a comparative study on classification in the nominal terms between "Biwiron(脾胃論)" and "Soayakjeungjikgyeol(小兒藥證直訣)" according to the below the procedure. (1) Making a nominal terms list of "Soayakjeungjikgyeol(小兒藥證直訣)" and grasping contextual meaning of nominal terms of it. (2) Modification and supplementation about semantic type of UMLS for "Soayakjeungjikgyeol(小兒藥證直訣)". Using the modified classification system, we classified nominal terms. After this process, we arranged classified nominal terms by Haansoft Hangul 2007. (3) Comparing classified nominal terms between "Biwiron(脾胃論)" and "Soayakjeungjikgyeol(小兒藥證直訣)". Result : In the "Soayakjeungjikgyeol(小兒藥證直訣)", there are more than 2,519's nominal terms and different categories of semantic type of UMLS classification from "Biwiron(脾胃論)". Through comparison between their classification of nominal terms, we can understand the characteristics of the two and their development of medical theories.

The Study of Deficiency of the Kidney-Eum Nourishing Therapy by Methodology of Oriental Medicine Music Therapy
Lee, Seung-Hyun ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 91~100
In this study, I investigated physiology and pathology of the kidney and then researched deficiency of the kidney-nourishing the Eum music therapy to apply for clinical use, because symptoms such as chronic fatigue, morbus asthenia, anxiety, dizziness, tinnitus, and amnesia are prevalent in our modern societies. These symptoms are due to deficiency of the kidney. The kidney stores vital essence and has a function to keep activities as motive power. If the kidney is abnormal in storing the essence and holding Gi, various symptoms like dizziness, tinnitus, amnesia are caused by deficiency of the kidney. In deficiency of the kidney-nourishing the Eum music therapy, Water-Gi music which can store the essence is mainly used. In case of patients with deficiency of the kidney, dizziness, tinnitus, and amnesia, we can make use of NO.3, BWV 1068, Air of J.S.Bach and Jinyangjo of Geomungo. If there are flaring-up and fidgetiness due to deficiency of vital essence, Earth-Gi music that can help the vigor of spleen and stomach should be used prior to Water-Gi music. In the concrete, Hahyeondodeuri of Yeongsanhoesang played on Geomungo can be used. The tinnitus is caused by wind-heat and fire in the gallbladder. It is good to nourish the Eum through Water-Gi music after dispelling pathogens through Jajinmori among Gayageum sanjo.
Study on Compass, Carpenter's square, The Beam of Balance and the Weight of balance[規矩權衡] in "Somun(素問).Maekyojeongmiron(脈要精微論)"
Lee, Hye-Yeon ; Kang, Jung-Soo ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 101~114
In the perspective of the correspondence of heaven and man[天人相應], people live through Gi of heaven and earth[天地之氣], and the human body which is a small universe[小宇宙] itself receives influence while sympathizing with the Gi and heaven[天氣]. So with unexpected incident of the Eum and Yang, four season[陰陽四時], ups and downs of warmth of cold and chilliness of warm[寒熱溫涼] differs, and the position of Gi of human[人氣] changes, regimen and application of acupuncture, and images[象] of the pulse changes. In "Maekyojeongmiron(脈要精微論)", ups and downs of Eum and Yang changes by four season[四時], and correspondence of ups and downs of pulse law is explained with compass, carpenter's square, the beam of balance and the weight of balance[規矩權衡]. Compass[規] is a measure of instrument that can draw a circle, like regulating the measure and differing the center of the circle and diameter and drawing a circle, compass is a image of Gi of Yang[陽氣] that was staying deep inside the body in winter stretching out by big fault[太過不及] of year and energy[元氣] of human in spring. Carpenter's square[矩] is a instrument that draws direction, which is a image of Gi of Yang flourishing in summer and when it gets highly flourished, again the Gi of Eum[陰氣] comes alive and falls. The beam of balance[衡] is a scale, like a scale that tilts at once when one side is slightly heavy, the beam of balance is a image Gi of yang that is fully flourished in summer and about to descent again, which is just about to fall but not going down yet. The weight of balance [權] is a image of gi of yang which as descent to the bottom and staying in the deepest place. compass, carpenter's square, the beam of balance and the weight of balance is not a direct pulse image[脈象], but standard image of pulse of pulse corresponding to the Gi of human[人氣] that changes by four season, and the explanation includes the pulse image of four season like the taut, full, floating, deeply gather[弦鉤浮營] of "Okgijinjangron(玉機眞藏論)" or taut, full, skip, float, deep [弦鉤代毛石] of "Pyeong-ingisangron(平人氣象論)". So with compass, carpenter's square, the beam of balance and the weight of balance, can judge is human correspond in Eum and Yang, four seasons, this is importantly used in examination of pulse[診脈] with existence and nonexistence, and prognosis of illness.

Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 115~124
King Heonjong was the twenty-fourth King of the Joseon Dynasty. He took the throne when he was only 8 years old, and had to go through power politics of maternal relations. During his period, situations worsened in both domestic and foreign affairs, meaning the beginning fall of the Joseon Dynasty. In respect to the diseases and treatments of King Heonjong, there appeared very few articles compared with the previous Kings, in the Annals of the Joseon Dynasty, the Journal of Royal Secretariat, and the Diary of Kings of the Joseon Dynasty. He caught small pox and recovered in 10 days at the age of 17. Some articles showed that he suffered from symptom of indigestion, dyspepsia and edema. He died at 23 and had no descendants. We assume that the cause of death was due to worsening of kidney failure.

Discussion on the Characteristics of the "Phlegm" in Traditional Chinese Medicine
Pan, Gui-Juan ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 129~132
This article aims at clarifying the formation and accumulation of the "phlegm" in the body. If the phlegm can't be dispelled, it would do great harm to the body health in many aspects, even leading to various diseases which are complex and hard to cure. "phlegm blocking the orifices of the heart", "Gi(氣) activities blocking", "the blood vessels choking", "muscular striae[肌腠] overflowing", " tumor accumulated", "inveterate phlegm loss the path", are the outstanding pathogenic characteristics of the "phlegm". Ancient and modern physicians accumulated rich experiences on preventing and treating the phlegm diseases. Those are worth excavating, organizing and clarifying deeply for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the phlegm diseases efficiently.

Lee, Hai-Woong ; Kim, Hoon ; Kim, Gyeong-Cheol ; Kim, Jong-Hwan ; Shin, Woo-Jin ; Park, Dong-Il ; Hwang, Won-Duk ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 133~142
Preconditions for the separation of prescribing and dispensing medicinal herbs in Traditional Korean Medicine are classification of medicinal herbs for general public and special medical uses, establishment of national medicinal herb distribution company of governmental base, restriction in purchase of medicinal herbs for special medical use, partnership between doctors and pharmacists of Traditional Korean Medicine, and coverage of herbal medicine-based medication in national health insurance, etc. The number of Traditional Korean Medicine Pharmacists which was born during 'the herbal medicine conflict' initiated in 1993, goes over 1,000 and will increase by 120 annually. The number of Traditional Korean Medical Doctors is over 17,000 and increases by 850 annually. So in order to engage partnership between two groups, the government have to arrange the number of outputs of each group. Standardization and classification of diagnosis and diseases in Traditional Korean Medicine is a matter of course in the separation of prescribing and dispensing medicinal herbs. Related societies and academies need to do researches with governmental fund first. After these works, we can launch a task force team for implementation of process for the separation of prescribing and dispensing medicinal herbs in Traditional Korean Medicine properly. Entering the national health insurance system for full coverage of Korean Medicine care service will be essential for the patients. Implementation the separation of prescribing and dispensing medicinal herbs in Traditional Korean Medicine would be the core of health insurance coverage for medication.

Kim, Yong-Han ; Kim, Young-Ho ; Kim, Eun-Ha ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 143~161
The "Dong-uibogam(東醫寶鑑)" is a Korean medical book which represents the Korean Oriental Medicine and compiled by the royal physician, Heo Jun. It was placed on UNESCO's Memory of the World Programme in the year of 2009. It has been translated and published in Korean 7 times so far, and most of them depended on the liberal translation. This study has a purpose to investigate the Korean version in the view of Chinese writing grammar, and the results can be concluded as follows ; 1. The Korean version shows insufficient translation of individual morpheme in the sentence which has the prepositions with the pronouns or the conjunctions. 2. Most of the versions failed to translate the syntax properties of the demonstrative pronoun; '之' and '其'. 3. Some of the versions are not successful in the understanding of the constituent of sentence correctly. 4. Many of the adverbial phrases are not translated, which is the constituent of modifier in the sentence. 5. Some sentences are mistranslated by the paragraphs. 6. Some of them failed to understand the significances of the vocabularies.

Kim, Myung-Hee ; Lee, Byung-Wook ; Kim, Eun-Ha ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 163~186
Objective and Background : Attempt to express knowledge by IT is the current of the times, knowledge of the oriental medicine have to meet the needs of the times. It takes 'classification system of the oriental medicine terms' and 'system of the predicate' for explaining the relation between concepts to express knowledge by IT technique. Researches for 'classification system of the oriental medicine terms' are in progress already, researches for 'system of the predicate' are insufficient. Subject of study : We proceeded to study of the predicate in Idongwon(李東垣)'s "Biwiron(脾胃論)" has clear theory system and considerable influence upon knowledge of the oriental medicine for studying 'system of the predicate' which expresses knowledge of the oriental medicine in early stage. Method : Acquire Chinese play a predicate part in "Biwiron(脾胃論)", translate the Chinese to answer the context, group the similar predicate, decide representative predicate of group. And attempt to make classification system of the representative predicate with Term management system based on SQL Server 2005. Results and Considerations : I classify the predicate which predicate diagnosis, treatment, symptoms and knowledge of the oriental medicine into existence, condition, cognition and will. This classification seems to be useful to explain factors which have an effect on demonstration and treatment.
A Special Characteristics of Han Dongseok's Thought about Change(易)
Baik, You-Sang ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 187~202
Han Dongseok advocated his own unique viewpoint about Universal Revolution based on Jeong-yeok(正易), and newly explained Exchange between Metal and Fire[金火交易]. Although he was not a researcher that had developed Jeong-yeok(正易), he has been judged as a utilitarian that tried to apply Change theory[易學] to realistic field called Oriental Medicine. The reason that such efforts are valuable is that he extended one of cosmological theory that is to say Jeong-yeok(正易) to the exchange of human body based on space-time progress. Theoretically he proved Jeong-yeok(正易) with the thought that heaven and human beings correspond to each other, realistically he showed turning point that as a main agent in Universal revolution we can change our own lives, in "The Principles of Universal Revolution", which is his most famous work.
A Study on Plot Composition of Oriental Medical Music Therapy
Baik, You-Sang ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 203~215
Music is composed according to time flow. In case of music therapy, it is the most important thing and this properties must be emphasized in operation, also act as one of the most important elements that increase the effect of medical treatment. Especially in the case of Oriental Medical music therapy, we must consider the change of time and space, so determine the direction and methods of treatment. In order to compose the music therapy process according to time flow[plot composition], first we have to analyze the musical and literary works that have step-by-step composition. Next we must consider how Gi(氣) changes occur in the base of principle of Eumyang(陰陽) and Ohaeng(五行). When the rule of composition as time flow is grafted onto Oriental Medical music therapy, native characteristics of music would have significance.
A Study on Gi(氣) from the Viewpoint of Mind-Spirit Activities and Original Gi Functioning
Kim, Joong-Han ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 217~233
"Singijonmangron(神氣存亡論; theory of mind-spirit activities)" is a medical discourse of Janggyeongak(張景岳) in the Ming[明] dynasty, and "Wongijonmangron(元氣存亡論; theory of original gi functioning)" is a work by Seoryeongtae(徐靈胎) in the Qing[淸] dynasty. One emphasized the importance of mind-spirit activities and the other said seriously about original gi functioning. We did a study on these two medical theories, and began with identifying the meaning of 'Gi' among the ancient chinese philosophy and medicine such as "Hwangjenaegyeong(黃帝內經)". After that, we showed the general 'Gi' and its variations in the meaning of 'Gi' according to name and function in "Hwangjenaegyeong(黃帝內經)"and other classics of prominent historic scholars of medicine, finally trying to find out the essentials of mind-spirit[神氣] by Janggyeongak(張景岳) and original gi[元氣] by Seoryeongtae(徐靈胎).
Significances on Political Thoughts in Traditional Korean Medical Texts- with Special References to "Dong-uibogam(東醫寶鑑)" and "Dong-uisusebowon(東醫壽世保元)"
Jeong, Bok-Cheol ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 235~255
Previous studies "Dong-uibogam(東醫寶鑑)" or "Dong-uisusebowon(東醫壽世保元)", Korean medical text written in the 16th/19th century, have focused mainly on his theories of Daoism and Neo-Confucianism or Post-Confucianism. This Study suggests that the "Dong-uibogam" and "Dong-uisusebowon" were the scholarly products of the Early Modern Neo-Confucians during the Joseon Dynasty period. These Early Modern Neo-Confucians ruled the dynasty rationally, and edited books on medical science, one of which were the "Dong-uibogam" or "Dong-uisusebowon". In these books, religious aspects of Daoism was excluded because these elements were not in agreement with medical science or Neo-Confucianism. The "Dong-uibogam" and "Dong-uisusebowon" were also translated into the Korean vernacular script based on an obligation to govern the people. This was example of Confucian enlightenment which was Early Modernity of "Dong-uibogam(東醫寶鑑)" or "Dong-uisusebowon(東醫壽世保元)" thought.
A Study on the Theory of Chimibyeong(治未病)
Min, Jin-Ha ; Baik, You-Sang ; Jang, Woo-Chang ; Jeong, Chang-Hyun ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 257~277
The purpose of this article is to oversee the theory of Chimibyeong(治未病). The aim of Chimibyeong theory is to prevent disease from occuring, worsening, being delivered and so on. In many books, the word Chimibyeong was used as an alternative name for Yangsaeng(養生) or used as a term of preventing a disease or used as a word meaning treating disease in the early stage. But after the period of "Nangyeong(難經)", people extend the meaning of Chimibyeong to all stages of a disease covering the healthy stage, the early stage, the progressive, and the recovery stage of a disease. Especially in urgent cases when pathogenic factor[邪氣] attacks patient to critical situations, it is also regarded as one way of Chimibyeong to repel pathogenic factor out as soon as possible with proper medicines. These days people suffer from increasing mental stress, lack of rest and human relationships, environmental pollution and chronic diseases and so on, and the situation will grow worse. Many governments employ the health policy where preventing disease takes the highest priority because by doing that they can save a huge budget and minimize the economic and social disorder. In this circumstances the idea of pursuing prevention in the theory of Chimibyeong will help people to maintain healthy conditions.
Studies on the Application of Food Ingredients to Danbang prescription of "Dong-uibogam(東醫寶鑑)"
Ji, Myoung-Soon ; Yoon, Chang-Yeol ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 279~302
Spices are used to enhance the taste of Korean food. The term "Yangnyeom" contains a wishful meaning that it would be as good for health as medicine when eaten. It is prescribed as a medicine to heal disease according to the ancient medical books. Fifteen spices in Korean food such as vinegar, liquor, honey, water, wheat-gluten, sesame, sesame oil, garlic, green onion, ginger, mustard, pepper, cinnamon, soy sauce, salt, cheoncho, and others are prescribed as medicine for internal and external uses for almost every disease. To examine these spices, the subjects were treated with either the spice-boiled water or spice-mixed water, or applied externally. It is suggested that spices that are produced through peculiar traditional cooking method, fermenting, and those that have long-growth period, grew in the natural environment, and the like have efficacy as medicine. Spices can be sufficiently applied as emergency medicine, disease-treatment, subsidiary supplement, and preventive medicine.
Understanding of the Sameum-Samyang in "Dong-uisusebowon(東醫壽世保元)"
Jang, Woo-Chang ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 303~316
Ijema's four constitution theory is the result of creative succession which is originated from the "Hwangjenaegyeong(黃帝內經)", and shaped up as "Sanghanron(傷寒論)", the key of Ijema's theory would be the re-explnation of the Sameum-Samyang pattern identification. therefore, we should recognize that the four constitution theory is related to the Sameum-Samyang identification of "Sanghanron(傷寒論)". And is even on the mutual supporting relation. from this point of view, the "Dong-uisusebowon(東醫壽世保元)" could be valuated as a commentary of "Sanghanron(傷寒論)" which shows us that how to review the Sameum-Samyang identification as the point of characteristic of four constitution theory.
Discussion on the Clinical meanings of the Collateral Diagnosis Method in the "Hwangjenaegyeong(黃帝內經)"
Wang, Xiao-Ping ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 317~319
The collateral diagnosis method is unique in Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis methods which has important clinical value. In my article, the contents of the "Hwangjenaegyeong(黃帝內經)" related to this method is discussed. According to the site of inspection in the diagnosis process, there are five types as following: inspection of the face and surface, the thenar, the orifices, abdominal collaterals and finally the index finger of children. This method can inspire clinical practitioners.
The Meanings of Gwol diseases in "Hwangjenaegyeong(黃帝內經)"
Chen, Shi-Yu ; Kim, Hyo-Chul ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 321~324
There are lots of disease names which contain the Chinese character "Gwol"(厥) in "Hwangjenaegyeong(黃帝內經)". Some of them are similar or identical to "Gwol"(厥) in today's Chinese Medical Science, but the rest can't be summed up with the meaning of today's "Gwol"(厥). The names which contain the Chinese character "Gwol"(厥) in "Hwangjenaegyeong(黃帝內經)"had been revised constantly in the later course of rectification of names. In the article, the names of disease which contain the Chinese character "Gwol"(厥) in "Hwangjenaegyeong(黃帝內經)"would be identified as referring to definite diseases by comparing with each other.
