Abstract :

"Medical Classics" was written by He Yue, Haiyan in the Ming Dynasty. The book quoted part of the contents of "Danxi Medical Cases", some of which were discovered for the first time. Using the method of philology, the contents of "Danxi Medical Cases" quoted in "Medical Classics" are compared with those in "Danxi Medical Press", "Ge Zhi Yu Lun", "Danxi Compilation Essentials", "Danxi Therapeutic Heart Essentials" and other books. The comparative study of recorded Zhu Danxi medical records proves that "Danxi Medical Records" and "Danxi Medical Press" are actually two books. In addition, "Medical Classics" quoted part of "Danxi Medical Cases", which is completely preserved, and has important reference value for collation of Zhu Danxi's medical cases recorded in other medical works
