Summary Syndrome differentiation (SD) is a critical step in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). There are to date no objective standards for SD; SD quality depends on heavily personal experiences; and the outcome of SD frequently varies from expert to expert. For those reasons, SD is more a branch of Arts than a branch of Science. In this paper, we propose a research methodology that is aimed at supplying SD with a statistical foundation and we test the methodology in the domain of kidney deficiency syndromes.
