Karṇaroga (कर्णरोग).—The nidanam of Karnaroga (diseases of the ear). The deranged Vayu, by coursing through the vessels of the ears, produces an extremely aching sensation therein which is called Karna-shula. The vessels in their turn are choked up by the morbific principles (doshas) in this disease when the deranged Vayu lies incarcerated in the ducts of the ears. The patient bears a variety of sounds such as of drums, trumpets, etc. When the deranged Vayu affects the sound-carrying nerves of the ears, deafness is the result in as much as they are choked up with the deranged Kapha.
