To provide suitable illustration in support of the documented knowledge of Siddha system and build a solid scientific base for its finding, the Author has selected the disease Udaravaathasronithum from “Yugi Vaidhya Chinthamani”. A genuine approach to the study of Siddha system should include an enduring grasp of the mammoth ancient treatise on the subject and the ability to capture their essence. Such an approach would be amply rewarding as it would lead to a better understanding of Siddha concepts in their true and original form, the manner in which they evolved and the best way in which they can be put into practice. Thus it is the need of the hour to provide suitable illustration in support of the documented knowledge of the system and build a solid scientific base for its findings. Having this basic aim in mind, the author had selected the disease “Udaravaathasronithum” which is one of the 80 types of vaatha disease, which was classified among 4448 types of disease by sage “Yugimunivar” in his “Yugi Vaithiya Chinthamani”. To study the disease on the basis of Siddha Physiology and Siddha Pathology emphasizing more importance to Panjabootha theory, Mukkutram, Udal thathukkal and Panjakosams. In line with this the Author has done the literary review to know the various works done by others on Udaravaathasronithum. Thereby helping the author to gain an in depth knowledge of the following on Udaravaathasronithum. 1. Etiology, 2. Scientific correlation of etiology, 3. Etiopathogenesis, 4. Symptoms of disease based on Tridoshas, 5. Alteration in Mukkuttram, Udal thathukkal. In addition to that Panchapatchi sastiram, medical astrology, ennvagai thervugal etc. were theoretically reviewed to narrow down the diagnosis from “a bird eye view to the core (Kosham)”. The understanding based on the above made the author to clinically study around 21 cases. Accordingly the author concludes the diagnostic method. CONCLUSION: Udaravaathasronithum diagnosed by means of : 1. Mukkuttram, 2. Udal thadukkal, 3. En vagai thervugal, 4. Manikadai nool, 5. Panchapatchi sastiram, 6. Medical astrology. It is found that the symptoms of Udaravaathasronithum diagnosed by the above mentioned traditional techniques can be correlated with Reactive Arthritis, the term used in modern clinical entity. The Siddha parameter used in the diagnosis of Udaravaathasronithum are; i. Naadi – PitthaVaatham, ii. Neer kuri, a. Niram – Yellowish red, b. Nurai – Froth presentation, iii. Nei kuri – Resembles like a pearl, iv. Manikadai nool – 91/2 virar kadai alavu, v. Signs of Naa: a. Trembling, b. Dry coating, c. Widely spread cracks, vi. Signs of Malam: a. Warm stool, b. Constipation. vii. Panjapatchi sastiram and Medical Astrology: a. Imbalance of Aaginai and Manipooraga chakras, b. Disturbance in the pathway of suzhimunai and purudan naadi, c.
