The result of the study shows that out of three humors Pitham was mostly affected. Neikuri patterns (50%) and Naadi (42.5%) of patient’s showed the derangement of Pitham followed by Vatham. Hence Soma rogam is proved it is a Pitha predominant disease. ❖ Siddha diagnostic methods such as Neikkuri, Naadi, Manikkadai nool and Panjapatchi observed in this study were significantly correlated for the disease Soma rogam as mentioned in the classical siddha text books accordingly. By this proper diagnosis method, the disease can be accurately diagnosed and the treatment will be a easier one. It shows the way for development of the Siddha medicine in diagnostic aspects. ❖ This study has been conducted only as an observational type of study. Furthermore, observational studies and Experimental studies with large sample size should be needed to carry out for validating this research in more efficient way in future.
