Objective: To study the general law of typing of bronchiectasis according to syndrome differentiation.Methods: We collected the symptoms, conditions of tongue and pulse in patients of bronchiectasis, using frequencies procedure, discriminant analysis and K-means cluster analysis in SPSS statistical software as research medium.Results: Five hundred and sixty-three patients with bronchiectasis were studied. It suggested that accumulation of phlegm-heat in the lungs (45.65%), liver-fire attacking the lungs (24.51%), asthenia of pulmonosplenic qi (22.38%), asthenia of both qi and yin(7.46%) were the main types.Conclusion: Clinical epidemiology provided scientific basis for further studying of the typing of bronchiectasis according to syndrome differentiation. Building up differentiation of syndromes through differentiation and analysis of main symptoms can be used in clinical diagnosis.

Key words: bronchiectasis, typing according to syndrome differentiation, clinical epidemiology, cluster analysis, differentiation of syndromes
