Ayurvedic texts have adopted multiple approaches to the classification of diseases.Caraka while choosing a binary classification in Vimana sthana declares that the classifications may be numerable and innumerable basing on the criteria chosen for such classification.He gives full liberty to the individual to go in for the newer and newer classification, provided the criteria are different.Taking cue from this statement an attempt has been made at categorizing the diseases mentioned in Ayurvedic texts under different systems in keeping with the current practice in the Western Medical Sciences.
