Shanghanlun is a medical text published by the Jiaozhengyishuju in 1065 A.D. during the Northern Song dynasty. The first edition featured larger characters but in 1088, a version with smaller characters was published with reduced price. This study compared various versions of Shanghanlun to clarify its system. Especially the alteration in the Chinese version by Jhao Kai Mei was comparatively analysed by the shape of letters and specific marks. Also, information on the various publications in Japan is included in this study, which we believe will be the logical outline for comprehensive understanding on the propagation and progression of Shanghanlun in East Asian region.
