Objective: To evaluate etiological factors (Hetus) of Kushtha in Dadru with special reference to Charak Samhita. Methods: 100 patients with Dadru and a randomly selected control group of 100 people were comprehensively investigated with a self-designed questionnaire. All the data obtained were transformed and analyzed statistically by chi-square test. Result: There is statistical difference between the Dadru patient group and the control group. Among the case group Viruddha aahar, Guruaahar (heavy to digest), Aatapsevan (exposure to sun), Sheetoshna-vyatasat (Alternate cold and hot), Dadhi (curd), Matsya (Fish), Ati lavan (salty food), Divaswap (sleep during day time) etc. was significantly higher than those of the control group (p < 0.05). Drava-aahar (liquid diet), Mulak (raddish), Madhu (honey), Takra (butter milk) Pishtanna (carbohyadrate rich diet) etc hetu were not significant. Conclusion- Our study indicated that, subset of hetus (etiological factors) out of all hetus of Kushtha which are responsible for Dadru has been categorized in this study. Hence Hetu Siddhant has been revalidated.

Keywords: Dadru, Hetu Siddhant, Case Control Study, Ayurved, Etiological factors.
