Acharya Sushruta had a complete knowledge of Vranashopha and described Vranashopha into 3 progressive stages. Inflammation in Ayurveda is known by different names in different contexts namely Shotha, Shopha, Svayatu and Utsedha. Inflammation is duly recognised in Ayurveda as a pathological manifestation, while Modern Medicine considers Inflammation as a symptom or rather as a healing response of the body. Ayurveda treats the concepts of Inflammation as symptom of a disease, an independent disease and complication of disease. Vranashopha shares common pathological features of Inflammation. The disturbances in micro channel circulation in Inflammation are due to Srotodusti (clogging of channels) by Amma (toxic waste of metabolism). The proper clinical approch to Vranashopha with Modern concept plays a important role in management and preventing complication of Vranashopha.
