Objective To investigate the association between body constitution and syndrome in patients with precancerous lesion of gastric cancer(PLGC).Methods The association rule data mining method was used to analyze the association between traditional Chinese medicine(TCM)constitution type and TCM syndrome type in patients with PLGC.Results Of all the 212 patients,84.43% were aged 34-69 years.For imbalanced constitution,59 patients had yang-deficiency constitution,30 patients had qi-deficiency constitution,23 patients had qi-stagnation constitution,11 patients had phlegm-dampness constitution,8patients had damp-heat constitution,7patients had yin-deficiency constitution,5patients had blood-stasis constitution,2patients had allergic constitution,and 67 patients had normal constitution.For TCM syndrome types,75 patients had deficiency of spleen and stomach,56 patients had liver-qi invading the stomach,33 patients had qi stagnation and phlegm retention,23 patients had internal retention of damp-heat,17 patients had intermingled phlegm and blood stasis,and 8patients had stomach-yin deficiency.There were close associations between internal retention of damp-heat and damp-heat constitution,between qi stagnation and phlegm retention and phlegm-dampness constitution,between intermingled phlegm and blood stasis and blood-stasis constitution,and between deficiency of spleen and stomach and yang-deficiency constitution,qi-deficiency constitution,and yin-deficiency constitution.Conclusion Most of the patients with PLGC have normal constitution or yang-deficiency constitution,and deficiency of spleen and stomach and liver-qi invading the stomach are common syndromes.TCM constitution type is associated with TCM syndrome.
