Anda Vadham is one of the important disease of the abdominal organs in which the patients are disturbed both functionally and emotionally. To evaluate the disease is important because if it is not diagnosed and treated properly it may leads to various complications. The study mainly made out, to rule out the pathogenesis of this disease on the basis of etiology, genetic factors, nutritional status, dietary habits, life style and socio-economic status.

Statistical Analysis and Inferences : The study subjects were analysed with the help of the statistical tools namely percentage, mean and standard deviations. The inferences, which were arrived by utilizing the test of significance viz, ‘t’ test, Relative risk and Odds ratio. Age Reference: The study subjects were analysed and interpreted based on their age, which is an independent variable revealing the burden of the disease. In the literature, some evidences are sourced that the incidence of diseases may be attributed to congenital. The congenital occurrence of the diseases may be exploited during the adult hood due to weight lifting and other hardworks. The incidence of the diseases in the late adulthood (40 to 59 years) and old age (above 60 years) may be evidenced by the causes related to the hard work. CONCLUSION : The clinical study of Anda Vadham is mainly based on Siddha diagnostic methods with the help of allied parameters. The lines that were depicted in the Anda Vadham under Uthara Roga Nithanam in the textbook Thanvanthiri Vaidhyam elaborates the clinical features of Herniation of the Intestines into the scrotum. Descend of the intestines into the scrotum, pain and swelling of the scrotum and reducibility of the hernial contents into the abdominal cavity. These are the signs and symptoms of Anda Vadham and it represents the clinical features of Complete Inguinal Hernia. The signs and symptoms of Anda vadham were studied in all selected cases. The aetiological factors for Anda Vadham is mainly due to increased Vayu accumulation in the intestines due to altered dietary habits, modified life style, congenital factors and environmental changes. This is stressed in modern aspects Abdominal Hernia is mainly caused by weakening of the abdominal musculature due to conditions which raised intra-abdominal pressure,old age and congenital defect. The picture exhibited in the Siddha parameters were the exaggeration of humour Vali which depicts through Ennvagai Thervugal and helps in the diagnosis.
