Gaṇḍamāla (गण्डमाल) is a Sanskrit technical term translating to “scrofula”, inflammation of the glands of the neck. It is used throughout Ayurvedic literature such as the Caraka-saṃhitā and the Suśruta-saṃhitā. Gaṇḍamāla is composed of the words Gaṇḍa (“swellings”) and Māla (“garland, field”).Source: Shodhganga: Edition translation and critical study of yogasarasamgraha
Gaṇḍamālā (गण्डमाला) refers to “scrofula” and is one of the various diseases mentioned in the 15th-century Yogasārasaṅgraha (Yogasara-saṅgraha) by Vāsudeva: an unpublished Keralite work representing an Ayurvedic compendium of medicinal recipes. The Yogasārasaṃgraha [mentioning gaṇḍamālā] deals with entire recipes in the route of administration, and thus deals with the knowledge of pharmacy (bhaiṣajya-kalpanā) which is a branch of pharmacology (dravyaguṇa).
Āyurveda (आयुर्वेद, ayurveda) is a branch of Indian science dealing with medicine, herbalism, taxology, anatomy, surgery, alchemy and related topics. Traditional practice of Āyurveda in ancient India dates back to at least the first millenium BC. Literature is commonly written in Sanskrit using various poetic metres.
