Anorexia, namely aversion to food, refers to the symptom of long-term lack of appetite or even refusal of food-taking in infants. According to modern medicine, it is caused by improper feeding of infants whose digestive system is under full development. While TCM holds that infants are of delicate physique with asthenic yin and yang, and their spleen qi is often in insufficient condition. Therefore, many factors may lead to disharmony of the stomach and the spleen, and their dysfunction in reception, transportation and transformation, giving rise to anorexia. Generally, infants with anorexia are in a normal spiritual state, but if the condition is lingering, they will become spiritless, lose weight, and have poor resistance to diseases. For infants with longer duration of anorexia, their growth will be hindered to some degree, so the problem should be treated timely. Anorexia is often seen in 1 - 6 years old children. Anorexia caused by exopathic diseases or some other chronic diseases is not included in the range of this problem.

According to clinical symptoms, anorexia is classified as three syndromes: dysfunction of the spleen in transportation and transformation, insufficient gastric yin, and asthenia of splenogastric qi.
