Yakṛdudara (यकृदुदर) or Jakṛdudara refers to “enlargement of the liver” and, together with Plīhodara, represents one of the eight types of udararoga (“diseases affecting the belly”) according to the fourth volume of the Rasajalanidhi (chapter 6). Accordingly, “Plihodara or enlargement of spleen is due to the blood and phlegm turning impure, on account of eating food-stuff which is classed as bidahi and increaser of kapha. Yakridudara or enlargement of the liver is also due to the same cause, as stated above. In these two kinds of udara-rogis, an abnormal excess of vayu causes udabarta, pain, and anaha, an excess of pitta causes loss of consciousness, thirst, sensation of heat, and fever; and an excess of kapha gives rise to heaviness of the limbs, aversion to food, and stiffness of the belly”.
