Objective: To analyze the relationship between traditional Chinese medical syndromes and fungal pneumonia for moderate and advanced lung cancer patients.Methods: We retrospected 115 moderate and advanced lung cancer patients with different syndromes in traditional Chinese medicine (qi deficiency, yin deficiency, blood deficiency, yang deficiency, blood stasis, phlegm dampness, phlegm heat, damp heat, cold dampness, qi stagnation, heat toxin), who had the concurrent fungal pneumonia, and used regression analysis method to analyze the data.Results: When the patients had the phlegm heat syndrome, they got a significantly higher risk of having fungal pneumonia (P<0.05); and when they had the heat toxin syndrome, they also had a high risk of having fungal pneumonia (P<0.05).Conclusion: The phlegm heat and heat toxin syndromes are the risk factors for moderate and advanced lung cancer patients having concurrent fungal pneumonia.

Key words: lung cancer, fungal pneumonia, syndromes, traditional Chinese medicine, risk factors
