Objective : The purpose of study is to define the term Dong(動) in diagnosis view.

Method : To define term Dong(動), I refer to Korean, Chinese, Japanese dictionary and Todo Yoshimasu (吉益東洞)’s writing, Yakucho(藥徵) Houkyoku(方極). Next, I search for the diagnosis definition of Dong(動) in 11 case reports.

Results : The diagnosis definitions of Dong(動) are two meanings. One is objective symptoms which are doctor can examine, trembling, movement, etc. The other is subjective symptoms which are patient’s feeling, emotional problems, etc. It seperates 6 meanings concretely.


(1) visible moving of a focus, (2) movement of a focus, (3) appearance of abnormal secretion, (4) abnormal change of focus, (5) feel like moving, (6) change of emotion beyond patient’s control. 1~4 are objective symptoms which are doctor can examine, and 5~6 are subjective symptoms which are patient’s feeling.

KeyWords : Dong(動), Yakucho(藥徵), Houkyoku(方極), literal meaning, diagnosis definition
