Pediatric spastic cerebral paralysis is a common type of pediatric cerebral palsy, and its clinical manifestations contain movement disorders, behavioral cognitive disorders, secondary musculoskeletal problems, secondary epilepsy and so on. Western Medicine believes that this is a brain disease with nerve abnormalities, while traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) considers that the disease is linked to abnormalities in the brain, but the radical pathogenesis is the deficiency of the liver, spleen and kidney, which can help the liver wind with blood rush to the brain. Although TCM and Western Medicine have different pathological understanding in pediatric spastic cerebral paralysis, but since the Huitong School of TCM and Western Medicine in the late Qing Dynasty, TCM and Western Medicine has been combined with Western Medicine knowledge, and we can better understand the connection among the liver, kidney, spleen and brain. Based on this background, this paper discussed the difference and connection between the perspective of Western Medicine pathology and TCM pathogenesis to analyze the mechanism of pediatric spastic cerebral paralysis.
