tenesmus; damp-cold impairs the qi phase, resulting in dysentery with
more pus (in white color) than blood (in red color); damp-cold obstructs
the middle energizer, leading to poor digestion, with such signs as taste-
less sensation in the mouth, gastric stuffiness, no thirst, heaviness of the
head and weariness of the body; since it is accompanied by exterior cold
syndrome, there are such symptoms as intolerance of cold, mild fever,
general ache and absence of sweat; the white-greasy coating and slow-
soggy pulse are both symptomatic of abundant damp-cold in the interior.

3. Pestilent toxins dysentery

Symptoms: Sudden onset, severe abdominal pain, aggravated tenesmus,
bloody stools with pus in purple red color or like bloody water, ardent
fever, thirst, headache, restlessness, chest fullness, poor appetite, vomit-
ing, nausea, or even coma, convulsion, peripheral coldness and bluish or
grayish complexion; purple-red tongue, dry-yellow coating and slippery-
rapid pulse; mostly seen in acute toxic bacillary dysentery.

Analysis of symptoms : Invasion of pestilent toxins is marked by sudden
onset; toxic heat obstructs the intestinal tract, leading to unsmooth func-
tional activity of qi, so there are severe abdominal pain and aggravated
tenesmus; toxic heat fumigates the intestinal tract and damages qi and
blood, resulting in bloody stools with pus in purple-red color or like
bloody water; fluid impairment due to abundant heat is manifested as
ardent fever and thirst; heat disturbs the upper part, with such signs as
headache; heat harasses the heart spirit, presenting as restlessness; toxic
heat obstructs the middle energizer, bringing about malfunction of the
spleen in ascending and the stomach in descending, characterized by chest
fullness, poor appetite, vomiting and nausea; toxic heat clouds the upper
orifices, so there are coma and convulsion; toxic heat consumes yin and
in the long run involves yang, giving rise to peripheral coldness and bluish
or grayish complexion; the purple-red tongue, dry-yellow coating and
slippery-rapid pulse are all manifestations of abundant pestilent toxins.

4. Defi cient cold dysentery

Symptoms: Chronic dysentery, loose stools with white pus, intermittent
onset, vague pain in the abdomen with preference for warmth and

pressure, tasteless and thirstless sensation in the mouth, poor appetite and
low spirit, intolerance of cold, cold limbs, pale tongue, white and thin
coating, deficient pulse or thin and deep pulse; mostly seen in chronic
persistent bacillary dysentery .

Analysis of symptoms: Chronic dysentery with deficient cold in the spleen
and stomach and damp-cold in the intestine is marked by loose stools with
white pus, intermittent onset, vague pain in the abdomen with preference
for warmth and pressure, tasteless and thirstless sensation in the mouth,
poor appetite and low spirit; inactivation of spleen yang leads to failure of
the limbs to warmed, so there are intolerance of cold with cold limbs; the
pale tongue, white and thin coating and deficient pulse or thin and deep
pulse are manifestations of deficient cold in the spleen and stomach.

5. Defi cient heat dysentery

Symptoms: Chronic dysentery with thick or sticky red blood and white
pus, or discharge of pure blood, vague pain in the abdomen, frequent
desire for defecation yet without stools, hectic fever in the afternoon and
dry mouth and throat; red tongue with little fluid or coating and thin-rapid
