Neera Saini, Singh Nk, Byadgi Ps

Abstract


Objective: The objective of the study was to evaluate the disease Amavata with current understanding of International Classification of Diseases (ICD) 2010.

Methods: For the present clinical study, a total of 100 patients were selected. Selection of the patients was done using subjective criteria (mentioned in Ayurvedic samhitas) to diagnose Amavata. Moreover, these patients were classified into three stages according to duration (<6 months, more than 6 months, more than 1 year) of disease. Laboratory investigations were advised such as hematological parameters and collagen profile.

Results: A total of 100 cases of Amavata were divided into two groups based on ICD classification 2010. 86 cases of Amavata patients were diagnosed as rheumatoid arthritis including all the three stages. 14 cases of Amavata were diagnosed as systemic lupus erythematosus, reactive arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis including all the three stages.

Conclusion: Amavata is a syndrome may be correlated to arthropathies described under ICD classification 2010.
