Dvandvaja (द्वन्द्वज) or Dvandvajaprakaraṇa refers to the third chapter of the Jvaranirṇaya: an Ayurvedic manuscript dealing exclusively with types of jvara (fevers) written by Sri Nārāyaṇa Paṇḍita in the 16th century CE.—The uniqueness of the text is that one can get a comprehensive classification, symptomatology and diagnosis of jvara, all at one place in this text. [...] This section is called “dvandva” because it deals with explanations mainly of the combination of two Doṣa. The section starts with the explanation of prakṛti-sama-samaveta / hetu-guṇa / samavāya and vikṛti-viṣama-samaveta / hetu-anānurupa-guṇa / viśeṣa (ayurvedic concepts of understanding the heterogeneity of patterns in a same disease).
