Mutrakrichchhra is one of the commonest health problems in community practice and it is a broad term which covers all most all the conditions of urinary tract infection (UTI), that is described in modern medical science. The pratyatma lakshana of Mutrakrichchhra is “Dukhena mutra pravritti” means discomfort during micturition. UTI may be defined as a condition in which bacteria enter, persist and multiply within the urinary tract. Mutrakrichchhra is also found as a lakshana in other diseases like Ashmari, Mutraghata, Mutraja vriddhri, Arsha, and Gulma etc. Description of this disease is given in almost all-important texts that deliberate its commonness in ancient period.
