The 55th chapter of Madhava Nidana is Kshudra Roga Nidana and deals with Minor Diseases. Kshudraroga is made up of two words i.e. kshudra and roga. Kshudra means alpa or short / small / minor and Roga means disease. So Kshudraroga are small /short/ minor diseases. Kshudra Roga comprises of a major part of the skin diseases. As its name indicate Kshudraroga are small and less severe diseases but it also contains some more severe disease like Agnirohini .
