Disorders of sweating and urination, the formation of thin mucus, dampness and phlegm, and their interaction with other pathological factors are discussed, and the classical sources quoted. Differentiations and treatments, both classical and modern, including both herbs and acupuncture, are provided in all categories, with case histories where appropriate and helpful.
