Thetthuru kuttam is a clinical entity described by Sage Yugi in his wisdom. This place of description is found in Yugi Vaithiya Chinthamani-800 a treatise by Sage Yugi. This clinical entity was described by him as one among the 18 types under the heading Kuttam disease. The study was aimed a delving in depth into the clinical features mentioned under Thetthuru Kuttam and to structure the Siddha diagnostic methods and prognosis of Thetthuru Kuttam. Thus the study conducted has come out with excellent results validating the clinical features of Thetthuru Kuttam elucidated in a succinct poetic capsule by Sage Yugi. The objective of the study was to evolve a set of exclusive Siddha diagnostic findings for Thetthuru Kuttam. With the observation and inference of various parameters like Naadi, Disease acquired season, Manikkadai Nool, Neikkuri, Duration of illness, it can be concluded that all of them point to the development or vitiation of Pitha humour leading to the disease Thetthuru Kuttam. Duration of illness observed in the study suggested that Thetthuru Kuttam tends to run a prolonged course. Manikkadai Nool results suggested a very slender range (9 – 9.1/4fbs) for Thetthuru Kuttam in majority (23.33%) of the study patients. So, with all the symptomatology and the observed results one can diagnose this study clinical entity as Thetthuru Kuttam with confidence. The Manikkadai nool and Neikkuri findings may help in identifying the preponderance in a person to develop Thetthuru Kuttam. hence, it can be used as a screening measure to advise the preventive measures well in advance. The patients with symptom of Thetthuru Kuttam mentioned by Yugi, confirmed with majority of symptom mentioned in the modern literature of Urticaria. Thus this study has validated the symptomatolgy elucidated by Sage Yugi and matched it with that of a disease – Urticaria, classified as per International standards. The analogy made in this study between these two topics given in two different systems of medicines has clearly established that both the entities are one and the same for all practical purposes. Hence this study concludes that the investigatory tools used in the modern medicine for Urticaria may also be used to diagnose the Thetthuru kuttam.
