The diagnostic methods and pathogenesis theory of traditional Chinese medicine are one of the core contents of traditional Chinese medicine. Through the comprehensive application of the four diagnostic methods, pulse diagnosis, tongue diagnosis, etc., doctors can obtain more comprehensive and accurate diagnostic information, thus formulating more scientific and personalized treatment plans. The theory of etiology and pathogenesis provides doctors with a basic theory for treating diseases, enabling them to better understand the essence and development laws of diseases, and formulate corresponding treatment plans. Although the diagnostic methods and pathogenesis theories of traditional Chinese medicine play an important role in clinical practice, they still need to be better adapted to the needs of modern medicine through long-term practice and continuous improvement. This review aims to explore the diagnostic methods and pathogenesis theories of traditional Chinese medicine, provide reference and reference for the development of traditional Chinese medicine, and contribute to the promotion of traditional Chinese medicine and the inheritance of Chinese culture.
