Abstract
Objectives and Methods: The present study was performed to investigate acupuncture point location of SI11 through reviewing literatures.

Results: 1. The first description of the location of SI11 appeared in ??ChimGuGabEulGyong(ZhenjiuJiayiJing)??, however the point description was not precise. 2. The first proportional measurement for SI11 showed up after Ching dynasty, which describes "SI11 is the point obliquely superiour 1.7 B-cun and transeversly interior to SI9" however this does not match the present WHO’s standard location of SI11. 3. The WHO standard location of SI11 is in the scapular region, in the depression between the upper one third and lower two thirds of the line connecting the midpoint of the spine of the scapula with the inferior angle of the scapula, but there is no evidence to support this in classical literatures. 4. Based on myology and theories of meridian, we suggest that it is more reasonable to locate SI11 at the point in the depression between the upper two third and lower one thirds, not the upper one third and lower two thirds, of the line connecting the midpoint of the spine of the scapula with the inferior angle of the scapula.

Conclusions: More studies are needed for the more reliable standard location of SI11.
