Pīnasa (पीनस) refers to “catarrh”, mentioned in verse 4.17 and 5.17, 31 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Accordingly, “[...] catarrh [viz., pīnasa], pain in the eyes, the head, and the heart, stiffness of the neck, anorexia, and giddiness—along with visceral induration— (result) from (suppressed) tears. In this case sleep, liquor, (and) cheerful words (are wholesome)”.

Pīnasa (पीनस) refers to “sinusitis” and is one of the various diseases mentioned in the 15th-century Yogasārasaṅgraha (Yogasara-saṅgraha) by Vāsudeva: an unpublished Keralite work representing an Ayurvedic compendium of medicinal recipes.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 pīnasa] 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).
