4. Jin Kui Yao Lue (Prescriptions from the Golden Cabinet) 4. 《金匮要略》
The "Jin Kui Yao Lue," also known as "Prescriptions from the Golden Cabinet" or "Synopsis of Prescriptions of the Golden Chamber," is the earliest monograph on the diagnosis and treatment of miscellaneous diseases in Chinese history, as well as one of the classics of TCM. The text was written by Zhang Zhongjing in the early 3th century at the end of the Eastern Han Dynasty. The book was actually compiled by later generations from his original works "Shang Han Za Bing Lun" ("Treatise on Cold Diseases and Miscellaneous Diseases"). The other book compiled from the same works is called "Shang Han Lun" ("Treatise on Cold Damage Disorders"). 《金匮要略》是中国现存最早的一部诊治杂病的专著,是中医经典古籍之一,由东汉张仲景撰于3世纪初。张仲景原著《伤寒杂病论》,经后人整理编纂将内容分为两部书:《伤寒论》和《金匮要略》。
The book is divided into three volumes and 25 chapters: The first volume tells of the way to differentiate variants of the cold; the second volume discusses the details of miscellaneous illnesses; and the third volume describes the prescriptions and ways of treatment. 该书共3卷,25篇。上卷为辨伤寒,中卷则论杂病,下卷记药方。
Later in the Northern Song Dynasty, the book was recompiled, with 262 pieces of prescriptions and more than 60 diseases listed in 25 chapters, mainly covering the internal miscellaneous illnesses as well as some external diseases and gynecological and obstetric diseases. 北宋年间,该书被重新编校,全书共25篇,方剂262首,列举病症六十余种,所述病证以内科杂病为主,兼有部分外科妇产科等病证。
