Acharya Sushruta has mentioned it as one among Astamahagada due to its complications to urinary system and also it is difficult to treat and also Sushruta calls it as “Antakapratima” which means Swaroopa of Yama, because of its severe pain. In Ayurvedic literature Bheda of Mootrashmari is based on Lakshana’s of Dosha & Ashma. Due to its features like dysuria, pain abdomen, haematuria and malaise in contemporary science it has been correlated to urolithiasis. Urolithiasis is 3rd most common affliction of urinary tract. The recurrence rate of urolithiasis is approximately 50% within 5 yrs. Renal calculi affects one in 20 at some time or other in their lives to a negligible or noticeable extent.
