“Sala peenisam” comes under sira roga nithanam in Thanvanthiri vaithiyam volume - I. which is characterized by Heaviness in head, Mucoprulent discharge from the nose, Fever, Cough, Sneezing. In this disease Sala Peenisam changes in Iyam humour aggrevated by heat, then Azhal and Vali humour are affected in the following features from the research work. 1. Exposure to dust and fumes. 2. Drinking contaminated and very cold water. 3. At times when the body is heat a sudden shower in cold water. 4. Exposure to chill atmosphere. 5. Changes regarding with altered climatic conditions. These factors leads to aggrevation of kabam which is raised by heat accompanied with vayu humour, which leads to alteration of kabam due to vatha pitham which is raised with vayu. The naadi of the patient was mostly found to be pitha kabam, and nei kuri was pearl shaped ( kaba neer ) which added more knowledge to author about sala peenism in the involvement of kabam and azhal humour. The modern parameters also gave the moral support for the diagnosis of sala peenism AIM AND OBJECTIVES: According to Dhanvanthiri Vaithiyam - Part I, Sala Peenisam is one of the disease which occur in para nasal sinuses of the skull.

I select sala peenisam as my dissertation topic because people are affected by the disease very often even respectable or irrespectable of climate. The main aim of the present study is to define the aetiology, pathology, symtomatology and diagnostic method of sala peenisam and formulating them after a detailed study into acceptable form that will be applicable and scientifically approachable in this modern world. To realise this aim, the following objectives can be drawn. 1. It is the most objective of present study to explore udal thathuvam (Siddha physiology). 2. To study clinical course of disease sala peenisam and its aetiology, signs and symptoms etc. of the disease. 3. To find out the change that occur in udal thathukkal. 4.
