Ayurveda is ancient medical science. In our ancient samhita, kamala vyadhi is briefly described. Kamala is pittaja nanatmaja as well as raktapradoshaja vyadhi. Charakacharya has considered kamala as advanced stage of panduroga. Sushrutacharya has considered kamala as a separate disease and also may be due to further complication of panduroga, whereas Vagbhatacharya described kamala as a separate disease. Kamala can be correlated with jaundice in modern medical science. In kamala vyadhi aacharyas has explained virechana karma. Modern science has limitations in treating kamala vyadhi (jaundice) but ayurvedic literature clearly explained pathology and treatment of kamala vyadhi which shows the specificity of ayurveda.
