Yonivyādhi (योनिव्याधि) refers to “diseases affecting the womb”, as mentioned in verse 5.40 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Accordingly, “Frenzy, epilepsy, stupor, (and) diseases affecting the head, ears, eyes, and womb [viz., yonivyādhi] destroys old ghee [viz., purāṇaghṛta]; it is purificatory and curative of wounds”.
Note: The phrase [śiraḥkarṇākṣiyonijān... vyādhīn]—“diseases affecting the head, ears, eyes, and -womb” has been split into two parts: klad-nad (“head-diseases”) and rna mig mnal[?]-nad (“ear-, eye-, and womb-diseases”). Instead of rna (“ear”) P2 reads sna (“nose”).
